tonyteach1 Is this murdering a folk song? (73* d) RE: Is this murdering a folk song? 13 Feb 12

Now hears a novelty I agree with Suibhne Why to go the trouble of knocking a classical tenor who is dead and trained in a different tradition and genre I do not like his voice but he was a top class professional singer who made his living as a performer. Can you do that

Perhaps Acorn4 would like to put some of his own stuff up for a laugh

The full throated singing so despised by a lot of folkies is sung a lot of people from different ethnic backgrounds There are masses of gospel choirs - barbershop choirs - jazz from many nationalities You can hear beautiful singing and fantastic guitar playing in the Congolese church in my area. If you told the average choir singer in Wales he was elitist, particularly one from a mining background I would do it from a safe distance or suggest it to the average Welsh rugby fan There are many forms of folk music performed in the UK I play flamenco, now that IS elitist because very few people have the ability to do it at a high level
