Strupag Lyr Req/Add: The Rumour (recitation) (19) RE: Lyr Req: The rumour 10 Jan 05

Absolutely right Guest,
As the point of the story is that the rumour gets passed on around Scotland, each place has a totally different accent.
The Skill in the performance is to get each accent right to suit each
geographical part of the poem. It's a skill that both George Duthas and the late Andy Stewart had. I wouldn't dare try it but I'd love to hear someone outwith Scotland to have a go
