A Harvest of Community Song

Here are some ideas for you to lead your own Harvest sing, using our songbook lending library. The next sing we’re leading is our annual songs of remembrance sing on Nov. 5th at Lakewood. More details to be announced next month.
Until then:

  • Borrow songbooks from the MNsings library -- FREE
  • See set lists below, choose one book or the other ( it can be awkward to shuffle big books during a sing)
  • Keys to success: try songs on your own first!
  • Add fall treasures (apples? cider? piles of leaves?)

If you choose the newer books (Rise Again), here's a suggested set list:

  1. Feelin Groovy (103)
  2. Side By Side (87)
  3. American Pie (243) - by popular demand - who knows this by heart??
  4. Welcome Table (78)
  5. La Cucaracha (103)
  6. Tie Me Kangaroo Down (108)
  7. Till There Was You (184)
  8. Whistle While You Work (109)
  9. 6 Days On the Road (281)
  10. Praise Bogs (49)
  11. I Will Survive (136)
  12. Can't Take My Eyes Off of You (231)
  13. This Pretty Planet (51)
  14. Wonderful World (140)

If you choose Rise Up Singing, here's a possible set list:

  1. Shine On Harvest Moon (81)
  2. Do Re Me (23)
  3. Wayfaring Stranger (105)

  8. Tea for Two (81)
  9. Circle Game (222)
  10. A Ram Sam Sam (188) - or - insert your favorite round here
  11. Power and the Glory (3 ) - if you want to learn an 'old' new song
  12. Mercedes Benz (3)
  13. Those Were the Days (227) - BIG FINISH!!!!
