Wrinkles Changing sex (41) RE: Changing sex 28 Feb 05


Agreement with IanC; not a problem in trad music.

There are way too many examples but as a "for instance" compare Andy Irvine's (with Plaxty) version of "The Blacksmith" with any female singers and I think his will win hands down ;-) and that's a song sung from the woman's POV until the final two verses where it suddenly shifts to the Blacksmith himself and then introduces a narrator!

The performance is the thing; aye, there's the rub ;-)
