Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
"Forced" to recite? Does this mean none of you do it today? I am working on a recitation for one of our concerts.

The late great David Parry always included a recitation in his performances. I saw him do The Face On The Bar Room Floor once at Old Songs and he nearly had the house in tears.

Come on in, every one, the water's fine! Learn something new and take it to a performance! You'd be surprised at the effect on your audiences. It's just like storytelling only more structured. Not much room to improvise.

Here's a Challenge! Prepare a recitation for the Mudcat gathering in New Hampshire in November!
