I recently found this British Library recording of Peter Kennedy interviewing Bob Copper;

In it, Bob talks about Claudy Banks as a trusted 'pipe opener' - the song they'd commence a session with in order to get the voice tuned up, the lungs filling freely, the confidence flowing etc (and perhaps also, to coax a wider group into joining in?).

Do you have any 'go-to' songs, for the same purposes?

Stan Rogers’ song ‘Lies’, MCC’s ‘Stones in the Road’, or Dave Wilson’s ‘Still Life in the Old Dog Yet’ do it for me.

no, when i do a gig , i listen to all the floor singers and residents first before i decide on my first song , flexibilty is the answer, getting a feel of the room and the club. to get the voice armed up the best thing is to do a few vocal exercises take deep breaths and yawn. b
