Thread Name: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Subject: RE: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Harmony singing is very different in families ... eg The Coppers , the Watersons , the Wilsons where there is already a natural blend of voices to that which is contrived (even though well rehearsed).
This natural blend is most evident in African music where the harmonies (of tribal music/chants) are very subtle and often quite irregular.
