Anne Neilson The Folk Voice (45) RE: The Folk Voice 13 Oct 11


For myself, I dislike nasal tones, vibrato, bellowing/large-chested projection -- and any kind of wafty voice that requires amplification to make any kind of communication!
So, a lot of no-no's -- but although my particular preference is for the compelling, full sound of a Jeannie Robertson or a Lizzie Higgins, I am also very appreciative of the high, pure sound of a voice like Maureen Jelks's.
For me, the main starting point has to be ENUNCIATION -- if the words are clearly understood, then the songs have communicated and the singers have done their duty to the tradition.
