Barbershop Polecats

BarberpoleAll Barbershop singers around the world learn a set of songs designed to show off the classic chords and arrangements of a barbershop song.  These are known as ‘Polecats’ and are typically fairly short (1-2 minutes) so they can be easily learned.

No matter where you travel in the world, if you meet up with a barbershop organisation you will be welcomed and able to enjoy singing these songs with them. The ‘Teach Tracks’ we have included on our ‘Learn Barbershop‘ page is one of these polecats and is the first song everybody learns when they join The Wayfarers Chorus.
