Thread Name: Loudest singers
Subject: RE: Loudest singers
Twice I’ve been at concerts where the electricity failed.
Once was with the McCalmans in Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh: says Ian McCalman : “We are definitely LOUD”, so they just carried on.
The other was at Sidmouth in the big Ham marquee when Show of Hands were on: Steve Knightley’s big voice kept that one going.
Kimber’s Men for another shanty group: fingers in the ears for me, and still too loud!
Alan and Carole Prior both have big powerful voices, especially Alan. “Bar-stopping” is how I described it when Alan starts up at our very noisy New Year gathering.
Then there’s Janet Weatherston: she says that when she made her first CD, her daughter’s comment was “At least we can turn you down now, Mum!”
