What’s Old is New Again – Performers play some of the oldest songs they can remember writing and some of the new songs that they’ve recently written

O Canada – Songs that name Canadian locations.
We’re Not Afraid of the Dark – Songs that are written about (or were written during) the night or the darkness.
Rise Up Singing – All songs have singalong parts for the audience and other performers on stage to join in on.
