GUEST,Eric Singing with Irish Accent - Why!!? (95* d) RE: Singing with Irish Accent - Why!!? 06 Jan 05

As an amateur, singing mainly for his own pleasure [though in public sometimes] I have found this a problem recently. In the last 5 or 6 years I have started to attend a few folk based solo singing courses and found them generally excellent but I have come across a lot of opinion that I should be singing in my local accent [just about the same as Jez Lowe's]. For the previous 30 years I have sung songs for the joy of emulating what I have heard others do and I naturally try and sing the songs the way they do. I accept the premise that putting yourself into a song is a good thing but I am struggling as many of them simply do not sound right - is a bluegrass song better done with a US inflection or like a Durham lad etc, etc?
