Subject: RE: To introduce songs, or not, and how?
A question.

Performers - do you see yourself as doing and ACT?

If yes, then you're probably going to have a rehearsed intro. The problem is that if someone comes to see you again quite soon afterwards. it's going to be so obvious you're an act from the scripted repetition.

That jarrs with the folk ethos for me - another reason why I prefer singarounds where, although you're going to see the same poeple from club to club - no-ones going to come out with repetetive patter. Amongst friends they'de probably get a humorous quip if they tried!
