DonMeixner Performance Question about Dialects (24) Performance Question about Dialects 15 Apr 20


I have been doing Scots, Irish, and English folk music for years. Being from the middle of New York State I have a dialect all my own. I have avoided some great Scots because of pronunciations and dialects. What is the general feeling about "Englishing Up" a song enough to make the meaning clear to an audience who understands the language but not the Scottish dialect?
