Backwoodsman Singing with a Prompter (33) RE: Singing with a Prompter 15 Apr 19


Whatever it takes, AFAIC. The important thing is that the songs continue to be sung, otherwise they cease to be songs. If the singer needs a ‘reminder’, so be it whatever form it takes - far better than the song going unsung.

I don’t buy the ‘disrespecting the song’ BS, that’s just an attempt at high-bar-setting by those who would make the folk-genre elitist. The worst ‘disrespect’ anyone can show to a song is to not sing it.

The usual disclaimers apply......IMHO, YMMV etc.
