Singaround with a theme: Southern Songs
Give us a song, a tune, a poem, a story, join in – or just enjoy. This has the theme of "Southern Songs" - a good open theme this time. We might have songs from the south of England, or from the Southern hemisphere, or, like "The Stately Southerner", about American civil warships. Lots of scope!
If you've never sung etc in public, if you need the words in front of you, if you're really nervous - here's a chance to dip your toe in the water.
