About Unaccompanied Singing
Bill Moore

Exchange songs and ideas about how to sing them. Ideas like–

• What does it mean to “sing from the heart”? What are things the singer can do to put feeling into a song?
• Why sing unaccompanied? How is it different from accompanied singing? Are there things you can do with one voice that can’t be done with accompaniment?
• What is ornamentation, and how much of it to use?
• Should the singer imitate the accents of traditional singers? How much?

Or, if you don’t feel like talking about it, come in and give us a song!

Bill Moore is a local small-time lawyer. He has been a folk music nut for 50 years, has sung unaccompanied ballads for 20 years, and has been a regular leading chanties at Hyde Street Pier for the last 15.
