The Forget-Me-Nots Organisation is a registered charity in Ireland (No. 20144661) offering an inclusive community choir for older people, family, friends and neighbours and is especially welcoming to those affected by dementia and memory loss. Participants are drawn from the neighbourhood, the local HSE Day Care centres, The Alzheimer Society Social Clubs in the region, local residential nursing homes, and from the wider Dublin NorthEast community.
We pride ourselves in being a non-conventional choir both in our teaching methods and choice of repertoire.
As our name suggests, we love Indie music but we’re also prone to belting out the odd pop/rock/folk/disco/funk/bluegrass/americana/traditional etc etc song. Anything from Bowie to Bronski Beat and Neil Young to Orbital . Nothing is off the cards!
Everything is taught by ear using participatory methods and our repertoire is both nostagic and current while also being a tad daring at times!! We are known for putting our own spin on some well known and not so well known songs with our original arrangements.
We love performing live and recording . Since our humble beginnings back in October 2015 we have performed in many festivals around the country and also recorded videos with local and national artists and bands such as "In the Willows and Emma Langford .
In 2021 we were placed in the top 30 indie covers for our version of The Stone Roses - She Bangs the Drums' .
