GUEST,Rev Bayes Singing in Different Accents/Dialects (172* d) RE: Singing in Different Accents/Dialects 08 Aug 13


Never mind other accents, the drift of modern English means many young singers nowadays can't cope with songs in their own dialect. Hearing some young Aberdeenshire loons recently murdering (local) bothy ballads was quite saddening. Not their fault, of course, but they had no idea about pronunciation and when they tried were inconsistent (the k-night took up his nife, etc).
