Thread Name: Pete Morton Congratulations.
Subject: RE: Pete Morton Congratulations.
Mind you, I saw him perform only once at Whitby, in 2002, back when I was young and cute. And I'm an old man now and my memory's imperfect - but I THINK it was Pete Coe and I thought he was English, but he sounded very American to me. I loved that recording you linked to, Freddy. The Irish performers I was hearing about the same time also sounded American - singing country music with a twang.

Nobody's trying to be American these days. We've lost whatever good reputation we had.
