Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
Re singing in different accents, I've lived in Ireland and sung songs here for 20 years, on & off. Often Irish or American songs, but have never disguised my Geordie accent.

The only time I do that is when I occasionally sing a Geordie one & soften it a little rather than not be understood at all, or worse still have to explain it in advance- not appropriate in a pub setting, IMHO.
