Just read the whole thread. Very interesting. Lots of fusion stuff going on at the moment! Lots of people from different regions sing together in groups! Should they all be singing different texts? Should the fusions not be fusing? Very confusing!
When I was a youngster I was part of the 'Folk Police' Now I'm older and wiser (I hope)I think you sing what the hell you want. If the audience don't like it they'll soon let you know. If you stand up in front of an audience you're acting no matter what accent/dialect you're singing in. MacColl was foremost an actor and he stuck to his trade when he became a singer.
