Sounds Familiar is a friendly, fun group singing group for people with dementia and their carers which was established in 2013. We enjoy meeting on the first and third Tuesdays of the month in the pleasant welcoming surroundings of the large function room of the Craigmonie Hotel.
We sing a variety of popular, traditional, songs and also enjoy hits from screen and stage. We particularly enjoy songs requested by members. We are accompanied by a 6 piece band who start playing as people arrive from 2pm. We are a community group entirely volunteer run and led and we depend on donations.

A typical afternoon would be:
Introduction and Welcome
Warm Up
Welcome Song
Upbeat set
Dance / promenade
Unaccompanied song
Percussion instruments
Quieter / reflective set
Accordion and band set
Focus on one singer eg Cliff
Quieter song
Concluding song from a selection which signals the end of session
