Anahata, Tanglefoot or other similiar substitute, in my case Sam Smiths Organic lager!
Dick - Traditional folk in the UK what a b***dy can of worms you opened there! Dick, did you mean singing in the style of the frail old men and women, untrained singers, that they were collected from? As I see it, the songs are out there and one does them the way one wants to, who they appeal to is something else. If I have a contribution it is that one shouldn't try to copy anyone but find your own voice, once you have found your own voice then sing, interpret and enjoy and if others do then it's a bonus.
I personally don't like labels, in the past it put me off some half decent bands! OK I do have a thing about singer/songwriters but some of my best friends are singe/songwriters..........it's just the awful ones!
Oh and, oh well....it will become a list!!!!!!
