Subject: RE: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Mike Waterson always says,"You sing the tune until you can't anymore.Then you sing a harmony". In the Watersons' case it was certainly that the girls set the pitch of the melody,so the boys had to stretch a bit to get round it. That's where that wonderful falsetto came from!!
