How exactly would to expect her to pronounce jungle?
It's a two-syllable word permitting a not too wide scope for linguistic variation.
A post of this nature does really require a health warning.
People might be trying to eat.

There's a Vietnamese proverb: A not too tight tie ties tightest which implies that those who set out to 'own' others are people traffickers.

If you love me love me truly
if you don't, please tell me so.
Ever differing the truth
like a debt is even sadder.
Listen, temple bells are tolling
birds call from the woods and mountains
and the cock has long since sung.

Clearly.

kRusby sings in a Yorkshire accent.
I know. So do I.
There is, however, but one way to pronounce 'jungle'.

The song You Belong To Me displays archaic and distasteful connotations of one person claiming 'ownership' of another.
This is vomit-inducing.

Ms Easby...you make the following statements.          >>>>>>>>>kRusby sings in a Yorkshire accent.

Can I suggest a little research into dialect, as there are many ways in which the word 'jungle' can be pronounced...try not just Yorkshire but Liverpool, Birmingham, South Africa for just three of what could be a list of many pronunciations.
Kate Rusby sings in a Yorkshire accent...you know!!!...so do you!!!! Never heard you sing so can't comment except that I have heard Kate, who is obviously much more well known than yourself as a singer and I believe she has a great voice and accent.
The theme that the song conveys is perhaps a little distasteful but does not detract from the overall presentation, especially her cover of it.

Don't need to. Been there. Done that. Got the MSc in Linguistics.
In mainland Britain there are two academically-recognised dialects.
Lowland Scots and Yorkshire Dales.
Not Barnsley.

The song is shit. Haven't heard the kRusby do it.
I'm just guessing but have no reason to expect that it's any less boring than all the rest.
But she's a 'nice' person.
As June Tabor always says (not necessarily about her), just don't expect me to listen to it.

'"Then again. Traditional song minus patriarchy = small repertoire, no?"
It would be wouldn't it?
as someone said once

"you cannot reform our forefathers"'

An example: -

"A blacksmith courted me, nine months & better,"
So women are just passive recipients of male courtship are they, you revolting sexist pig? Also, I note with some disgust that the period of courtship is nine months -- a clear allusion to the normal period of gestation, thus reducing women (once again, I might add) to their so-called biological function as childbearers.

"He fairly won my heart, wrote me a letter."
Ah. So now we get to the crux of the matter. Rather than contest gendered norms of employment, you chose to be courted by a male blacksmith. Could you not find any wimmin blacksmiths (or "diversesmiths," as I choose to call them)? Shocking. Truly shocking. And as for your being impressed that he could write you a letter, I suppose this speaks volumes about unequal access to basic education in a patriarchal society.

Quotes from Diane in this thread:-

There is, however, but one way to pronounce 'jungle'.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Given that one of the original drifts of this thread was that someone liked the way that KR pronouced 'jungle', does it matter if its a dialect or an accent? If it sounds different it sounds different.

All I can think is that DE is either just winding everyone up or she deserves pity.
Either way, perhaps it's better not to comment further but just leave her to her sad existence.

The 'f*lkie' with upper/lower case difficulties said:

does it matter if it[']s a dialect or an accent?

In order to discuss diction accurately, obviously it does.
However the thread's 'original drift' was to inveigle the unsuspecting into listening to irrelevant MOR crap.
That's a wind up.
Either that or a demonstration of extremely poor taste.
So someone else started the 'lending CDs to beginners' thread, to discuss actual real music and get away from the pathetic rubbish being pushed in this one.

What I talk about mostly, 'phil who has lost his star', is English music with roots in a tradition.
If you think that's tosh, I'd suggest you are in the wrong place entirely.
kRusby (and Pure) have an agenda: to push what she produces onto mainstream playlists.
kRusby, who I've met only a couple of times, seems very nice.
I'm sure she is just that. Who she is isn't quite the point. It's what she does.
Her music may be considered 'nice' too, if you happen to like that sort of MOR pop.
A recording of a dreary, dated mainstream song of the 'moon in June' genus does not a thing to promote English music, even if it is rendered in an English regional accent.
To post a link to her performing it can only be a wind-up at best and the result of imposing it on the unsuspecting could do immense damage the image of English music.

I don't know about anybody else, but I feel very uncomfortable with this hostility between people who obviously haven't met each other.

Diane ( I think it was you) you should say sorry for calling GS a pervert a few weeks ago. he's not. He's a decent chap and seriously does his best to be an okay guy.

You are entitled not to like Kate Rusby (and god knows who else), and like Eliza Carthy (and god knows who else) - by accepting or rejecting what they do - it helps you define yourself as a singer. Something which is importatnt to you - and no one knows how important that is to an artist, if they ain't in there doing themselves. the vehemence with which you reject is understandable to me (I've done it myself so I understand). To people who don't wake up in the morning and reach for the guitar or fiddle - it just comes over as a vicious temperament.   I'm sure that's not the case.

Both Kate and Eliza are entitled to call themselves folksingers. They both hang around with folk musicicians in folk clubs. they both make a sincere creative effort.

Now try and be nice.

Yes, I am but I don't 'not like' her.
I scarcely know her and she'd be hard put to recognise me, I'm sure.
That would be mainly because I'm rarely where she is, for obvious reasons but absolutely not personal.
What I am annoyed (and quite alarmed) about are attempts (for whatever reason) to pass off what is clearly not rooted English music by any stretch of the imagination as just that.
I'm not telling anyone what they should like. That would clearly be pointless. Listen to what you like. What I'm calling for is dispassionate accuracy.

[And the sort of predatory behaviour at music venues that GS seemed proud to have indulged in is perverted to me and I'll be continuing to criticise it].

GS is one of the least threatening, and least predatory people you could ever meet - if you met him - you would know this immediately. I cannot imagine how this misunderstanding has taken place, but I can imagine that your characterising him in such a way will cause him distress.

Whatever you and I and Jim Carrol think. (I'm picking the three most opinionated Britgits I can think of!) there really isn't a gold standard as far as folk music is concerned. We can think our own thoughts, but to express hostility and agresssion to others about those opinions - well it makes us look stupid. Its an inflation of our own self importance in the context of world affairs.

It relly is self demeaning - losing it (to the extent of abuse and unfriendliness), over minute gradations in our beliefs about what is folk music.

I never think about 'what is f*lk music' because the term is, nowadays, so degraded as to be totally meaningless. I won't even use the word and am in favour of it being binned forthwith.

Trying to argue that, for instance, kRusby droning out a tired old standard is what English music IS, causes vast damage to what it actually is. I'm quite certain she won't be in the slightest upset at the knowledge that I don't much like vast swathes of what she does; she's making a living at it and providing work for some of this country's best musicians and will doubtless keep on doing what she does. And so will I.

As I said higher up, dispassionate accuracy are the keywords. If you happen to like baroque, atonal jazz, techno grunge, early C20 cowpat Gilbert&Sullivan or brass bands that's fine but it doesn't become 'English f*lk' overnight just because you say so.

I'm unable to see it as a 'minor gradation in belief' when mouthy blokes who don't know me and certainly haven't seen me perform yell that I'm talking 'tosh' when spelling out in minute detail what precisely I'm talking about after they've failed lamentably to get it the first time, largely because they're so self-absorbed with scouring the countryside in packs on the pull.

Thank you for your input Al....the incident Diane is referring to was printed on a thread entitled "Best thing seen in a Folk Club"...and I remembered in the 1960s...yes the 1960s....being in a Folk Club and seeing an absolutely beautiful girl walk in with her boyfriend and all eyes were on her.....even the women.......Diane took exception to this and decided...because of REPEAT a 1960s incident, that I am some kind of pervert. I was tempted by several friend on here to take legal action for libel but felt it unwarranted and perhaps rather petty. If Diane decides to present herself as some kind of self styled, all-knowing, feminist, wind up merchant then she should be treated as such. She just never grew out of the playground attitudes and expletives.
As for Kate Rusby...at least I have heard her singing and seen her perform...Who is Diane Easby anyway?

What the hell does it matter who I am?

It is precise definitions of music for the purpose of intelligent comparison and discussion that are at stake here.

As it happens I have been involved in music journalism and research since before GS embarked upon his intimidatory pursuit of women. I have not, however, done a paid gig for 30 years (and never in Lincolnshire) and so people can draw their own conclusions about the very odd lies which fly about surprisingly often from those who claim to have seen and heard me where I was not.

GS (and others) admitted quite blatantly to ogling women rather than keeping his eyes and mind on the performance. My concern is to ensure that music venues are safe for women to be. At the time many women contacted me offlist about how intimidated they had felt when on the wrong end of predatory behaviour at venues but were too scared to speak out. I'm not.
