Thread Name: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!!
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!!
For the record: my comment about Kate Rusby's accent was ONLY in the context of the programme makers' choice of having ANYONE with a Yorkshire (or any other than "West Country" accent or neutral RP accent) singing the introductory song to a particular TV programme. No more, no less.

If I was criticizing anyone, it was whoever chose that particular recording for that particular programme.

Nothing wrong with any regional accents. Quite the contrary.
