Thread Name: One song performers
Subject: RE: One song performers
A slash and burn approach to singing isn't a good idea either.

By which I mean the opposite extreme to the one song performer, the one who makes a point of never singing the same song twice. With the consequence that they never sing a song they have worked out how to sing. To sing a song properly most people need to have sung it a few times, so that it has bedded in, so to speak.

One song performers who do their party piece on occasion, and shut up the rest of the time, have always been a valued part of traditional singing.
