Hey, me again... anyone got any ideas of any "Up-beat" Folk Songs? Whether they be American, English, etc. is fine...

Thanks again!

Peace out

TC - what do you mean by 'up-beat'exactly?? If you mean lively numbers, I'll give you a few suggestions...

Chad,

Try some chanteys: New York Gals (aka Can't You Dance the Polka), South Australia, Johnnie Come Down to Hilo, Hieland Laddie, Blow the Man Down, Roll the Woodpile Down, Rueben Ranzo, Paddy Lay Back, Santy Anno, Huckleberry Hunting. Lots of great songs in that realm that'll get people singing.

JB

New York Girls
The Beverly Maid and the Tinker
The Miner's Lifeguard (the way I do it, anyway)
The Happy Man
The Agincourt Carol
The Plains of Waterloo

... heck, aren't they all upbeat? I'm having difficulty thinking of a dirge, now...

To get the evening off to a lively start, I find that you can't beat some good old Dubliners type numbers. Whiskey in the Jar is a particular favourite as everyone joins in the percussion using drinks trays, tables etc..Belfast skipping song is also pretty quick. Scottish numbers are alsolively, such as Barnyards o' Delgaty and Highland Harry. On the American side there's Hard Travellin' and Roll in my Sweet Baby's Arms. Is that enough to be going on with??

Anyone know of any choral arrangments to these songs???

Here's my deal: For peaking interests and allowing students to feel a new experience, each fall I plan on doing a different kind of concert with my chorus, and then a winter concert in December.. The fall concert will be mostly something with a theme.. like a "Gospel/Spiritual Spectacular" Or a "Multicultural Explosion"... I also wanted to look into having a concert with a folk theme, folk songs stemming from the US and the UK... Mostly SATB, with some arranged for females, and some arranged for males.. For a male chorus, I'm pretty set.. I'm thinking "Shoshone Love Song", "Loch Lomond", and "Colorado Trail", but then I realize all the songs I wanna pick are.. like.. slow.. love songs, kinda... I'm gonna need to do some faster stuff, if you know what I mean.. can ya help?
