Subject: RE: Ways not to introduce your song
Know your audience.

A folk club might appreciate some background, a pub audience might not.

I once heard a well respected female group explain who wrote the song; where they got it from and its background as well as frequently changing instruments with a PA set up that was more used to rock music. The audience was not specifically folky. 100% miss.
