Santa Peggy Seeger's Cockney Leadbelly?? (174* d) RE: Peggy Seeger's Cockney Leadbelly?? 09 May 08

I hope Greg does find out who this singer was - can no-one even come up with any suggestions? Even a list of those who did sing at the club around this time might at least help to rule out who it wasn't, or jumpstart a few memories?

Otherwise it is just another thread on the (to me) empty argument about singing/not singing outside your own tradition. I think the scene would be poorer without the wider distribution of such songs, but can understand why some combinations just don't work!

My wife has similar problems with some of the songs she'd like to sing. She loves the big ballads, but as they tend to come in Scots dialect she is never happy about how much she should go in attempting/avoinding the accent/dialect without ruining the rythms.
