Thread Name: Singing in dialect
Subject: RE: Folklore: Singing in dialect
I once made the mistake of reading Dylan Thomas' Child's Christmas in Wales in a booming Welsh accent. I did a great job of it too, a real Taff told me so. Alas, two days later the local radio station played a 1930s recording of the great man himself reading it on BBC radio. He had a plummy English accent! I felt a right pudding.
