Well okay, but there are half a dozen little festivals near where we live and none of them book him. Its not asking the world, is it?

Kat, you're right. he has less of an American accent than I do when I sing most songs. This is due to the fact that I have sung songs professionally in a c and w band, and also many songs from the American songbook - Porter, Kern, Gershwin etc when i gigged old peoples homes.

the point is that he doesn't do the all purpose traddy accent complete with grace notes - that I also do - from my time doing Irish theme bars.

I'm quite willing to own up to not having an ounce of artistic integrity - if it means singing in the same voice for every song. Just pains me to see someone done down, who is integrity personified.
