Thread Name: Burns night repertoire suggestions? (songs)
Subject: RE: Burns night repertoire suggestions?
Yeah I got that Jerry but I still honestly believe there are more than enough really well known Burns songs to fill a Burns Supper even for folks who are not Scots or folkies. I perform next Tuesday at the Wine Club Burns Supper too. About half of the members are English born and they seem to have no problems with appreciating and enjoying the Burns songs. I realise that some might want to hear pop songs instead but that is life. Not saying it shouldn't happen just that I don't really understand it myself. If I went to a Leonard Cohen evening then I'd be a wee bit disappointed if I was told "everyone might not know all these songs so we are doing some Justin Beiber too. Unlikely I know :-)
