Gedi What is a traditional singer? (136* d) RE: What is a traditional singer? 12 May 09


I too am in agreement with Hawker Laddie in "just sing the bloody songs".

I tend naturally to sing songs in the way I learned them (heard them) so therefore I sometimes sing in an accented fashion, not to try to be Scottish or Irish or whatever, but simply because thats how I learned them. Now I'm going to feel *very* self concious about some of the songs I do and that I think will only detract from the song and/or the performance.

I can see how someone who adopts say an American accent and tries to sing everything in that accent might sound silly, but on the other hand, to try and sing say Parcel of Rogues in my native Wiganese would sound downright stupid.

All in all I think I'll just carry on as I was.

cheers
Ged
