Thread Name: Singing in dialect
Subject: RE: Folklore: Singing in dialect
Is this thread basically for stage performers, or ordinary club singers? As one of the latter, I have no problem about singing in any dialect or language I feel I can handle.

There may be a different problem for stage performers who want to develop a following and a stage persona. Surely Utah Phillips would never be caught dead singing in Broad Scots or Geordie!
