early strange singing techniques (35) RE: strange singing techniques 25 Jun 04

the four singers I have noticed doing this are all amatuers who sing around the clubs in yorkshire UK.
In some cases they seem to be trying to inject some emotion into the songs but for me it just ends up looking ridiculous and spoiling the delivery of some quite nice songs.
As i run an open session every week and have done for 11 years my view on the openess to all levels of singers players and styles is one of encouragement but given the difficulty in presenting folk to a wider audience, wonder if there are limits one should impose in order to present a more appealing spectacle to the onlooker.
your thoughts please M
