Dee Ukes had a great time at St Mary’s Care Home in Monifieth where we are always treated to wonderful hospitality with fancy juice beforehand and tea/coffee afterwards. The residents there are so well looked after and were all given percussion instruments at the start by their activities’ co-ordinator Marie. Quite a few of the residents have a great sense of rhythm and many were able to sing along to most of our songs. To see so many smiling faces in front of us is always so rewarding. We’ll be back to see them all again in November. 🙂

We recorded End of the Line which has now been added to the Audio Files tab, but I have also added it here. If you listen carefully at the end you can hear Denis’ comment. 🙂
Just a reminder that Sunday Sessions Folk Club is on this Sunday (25th Feb.) starting at 7pm. We practised the two songs we will be singing: Chatanooga Choo Choo and End of the Line. Hope to see many of you there.
We also practised Five Foot Two Medley, Loch Lomond, Grandma’s Feather Bed, Spread a Little Happiness.
We tried two new songs:
Annie’s Song – I have done a second version as we would like to try a couple of suspended chords which we have seen in other versions. Version 2 is on the Current Songsheets tab as well as here. Annie’s Song Version 2
My Guy – We practised the introduction and ending patterns which most people managed fine. With a few more practices I think this will be another good one.
I will make Annie’s Song number 40 and My Guy number 44 on the Master Playlist.
As usual the time just flew by. Thanks to everyone for making it fun again. 🙂
