Thread Name: audience singing along in concert
Subject: RE: audience singing along in concert
I think what's being missed in some of the comments is that this was at
a Peggy Seeger concert - someone who very much believes in audience
participation. Although I don't know Eliza Carthy personally, I cannot
believe she would have joined in in a way that overpowered Peggy.
Evidently Peggy's son Calum had remarked that the audience didn't make
very much noise for its size - which could mean one or two things but
would seem to fit with encouraging singing along.
