Jack Hickman - Kingston, ON Irish accent right or wrong? (60* d) RE: Irish accent right or wrong? 09 Jul 99

There may be occasions when a person can emulate an Irish accent, or any other accent for that matter. These are rare, however, and in most cases where I have heard a performer try to put on an accent, it sounds so phony that it takes completely away from the song. I can't think of any song in the Irish repertoire which would be improved upon by the singer putting an accent.
