What is a good song to play at a special tea event?

Asked by blueberry_kid (5653 points ) August 11th, 2011

My grandmother is having a tea with all of her friends and she asked me to play my violin at it. Problem is, I don’t know what song to play. I can play anything, seriously. Just nothing to servere.

Any suggestions?

What music does your grandmother like?

I’m 64. Is she about my age? If so, perhaps I can give you some suggestions.

I have a CD called Tea Time that contains several violin pieces. Maybe it will inspire you, if you can find it.

Obviously this Beatles song.

How about something Celtic like this, Boondock Saints Theme

This was amazing and sweet and not weird or freaky or too modern of popular sounding. I hope you like it. If not this particular song, then something else kind of upbeat, romantic and Celtic sounding.

Ave Maria. Always a winner with the grandparents/tea crowd.
Or, Turkey in the Straw.

Or you could always do some bluegrass, Cripple Creek or Constant Sorrow

How about looking for some Noel Coward or Cole Porter music?

Tea for Two

How about Tea for Two with you tap dancing as you play? Seriously, I’d like to hear classical music, what ever you choose. Makes the tea more elegant.

“Daydream,” by the Lovin’ Spoonful!

@blueberry_kid Irish or Celtic music would be fantastic!
