Subject: RE: Hitting the high notes
Using a head voice can be an important part of some traditional singing. The clever techniques classical singers have may make for a prettier sound, but that may not always be the sound that is most fitting for Sean Nos singing, or mountainy songs.

It's a bit akin to the difference between classical violin techniques, and those of fiddler-players. And there was an interesting thread about that recently too.
