To get back on topic (sort of), I wonder if anyone has any thoughts about what PA songs would particularly lend themselves to a capella performance? Maybe this should be in another thread though.

 
The first two that occur to me are both from Winter Spring - An Empty Table and A Hill of Little Shoes.  Their loose structure seems appropriate to the style.

Uh, "Drink Up Thee Zider?" "Twice Daily?" "The Champion Dung Spreader?" "The Chew Magna Cha-Cha?" I think we should be told.  

 
Well, I did think of singing Thee's Got'n Where Thee Cassn't Back'n Hassn't, but I reckoned the Geordies would never have understood the lyrics  Smiley
 
It was indeed a song from and about the south-west, but from Devon rather than Somerset: Country Life, written by Steve Knightley (of Show of Hands in case anyone doesn't know him). I'd been singing it at folk clubs and the like, so the lyrics were fresh in my mind at the time.
