Subject: RE: Help: Trads to recommend for singer?
Escamillo, are you a tenor, baritone or bass? Some songs such Danny Boy are usually sung by a tenor, although with folk songs there is usually no problem changing the key. If you are singing a piece from an opera or musical, (Porgy and Bess comes to mind) you probably would want to keep it in the same key as well, although something like "Summertime" is now a standard and you can get away with doing it in any key also. It might make it easier for me to suggest pieces.
