Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
The Compass Rogues used to play at a memory-support program. In fact, it was at Bellvue Hospital in New York City. Was always rather amusing to say "I'm playing Bellvue today." Great straight line. In any case, the audience was great. They had fun. We had fun. Just did our normal sea chanteys and tunes.
We probably were doing a lot of stuff they remembered from having lived in New York during the folk revival.
