Andy M why do some sing in usa accent (64* d) RE: why do some sing in usa accent 11 Nov 18

Vic Smith: I love that idea of 'blacking up your voice' - pertinantly put. Billy Bragg, on his recent book tour tells a tale; at a very early singers club Peggy Seeger laughs out loud when John Baldry sings a leadbelly song in a tortured 'american' voice. The response is that Baldry is doing it to sound like Leadbelly. "I know Leadbelly, and he sounds nothing like that!" is Seeger's reply.
