Subject: English Regional Voices - Name names!
From: GUEST,Jim Moran
Date: 01 Dec 15 - 04:06 PM

I'm looking for examples of English folk singers - past and present - who perform in distinct regional accents.
For example, just by hearing the performer you could tell where she/he came from e.g Newcastle, West Country, Liverpool and so on.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry cnd, Allan Smethurst, The Singing Postman, definitely sang in a Norfolk accent, having been born elsewhere, but brought up in East Anglia (which does not include Lincolnshire). Having been brought up in Suffolk myself, the accent has some similarities and we loved the fact that someone was singing in "our" accent. I even worked a summer job in The Swan in Lavenham (Suffolk) which features in this wee film of him.

And wasn't Peter Bellamy also from Norfolk, and the accent shines through on at least some of his songs?

Any "scouse" i.e. Liverpudlian sounding folk singers?
I guess Fred could have answered this one!
The Spinners never sounded Liverpudlian - to my ears.

The Watersons were specifically Kingston-upon-Hull in The East Riding of Yorkshire, very different from Sheffield and Barnsley (South Yorkshire) or North Yorkshire (as Middlesborough WAS before somebody messed with the map).

I'm pretty sure Ben Harker does (fairly new, young singer / guitarist, operates in a duo with a woman Emily / Emma someone: can't call her name to mind right now; I think they won a BBC Young Folk Musician award in last few years). At this remove, I recall his chat more than his singing (though it was good!) and I'm certain he hails from Tyne or Wear valleys way.

I thought that Cosmotheka used to adopt the voice/accent of the music hall performers associated with the material that they covered.

I'm not sure about that.
Take Liverool, it's had a thriving folk scene for over 50yrs, and yet the vast majority of "folk singers" from there don't sing in a Liverpudlian accent.
Of course, most folkies that I know from Liverpool aren't Scousers.
