I did a Whale Sound reading last year of a poem by Erin Elizabeth Smith which included the words to a folk-song. I don’t have a good singing voice and don’t know anything about singing, but decided I would have a crack at it anyway. That is, singing a known song as part of a poem.
But check out this reading by Cin Salach, sent in by Kathleen Kirk. Where does Cin Salach get the music from? How does she know what to sing? Do you hear music when you write your poems?? I certainly don’t, but soooo wish I did, watching this.
