Loch Lomond – Peter Hollens

I’m not sure what it is about this rendition of Loch Lomond by Peter Hollens stirs me as it does, but it does. I’m not Scottish, I’m Cherokee. However, when I listen to this acapella version, featuring Peter Hollens, Peter Hollens, Peter Hollens, Peter Hollens, and Peter Hollens, I get goosebumps. This, then, is my contribution to the #favorite-things challenge.

Singing good harmony is difficult. Anyone who thinks that it is easier when you sing harmony with yourself should try it sometime. It is actually far harder than singing harmony with someone else. I am saying that from the viewpoint of someone who has done both. It is far easier to harmonize with someone else.

What do you think?

  1. It’s a lovely song, but I’m not particularly keen on this version of it. I think it’s the American accent that ruins it for me! I was born in Scotland, and I reckon it needs a Scot to be singing it and not translating the Scottish vernacular into modern English! It also needs to be a lot sharper and not sung with the saccharine tone that this singer uses.

      • Unfortunately, there are many British singers who seem to think that they have to adopt an American accent – possibly so that they can sell in America. One of the worst is Elton John, who is a dreadful singer but has made a fortune by doing this.

        • It isn’t just British singers. Olivia Newton-John had a very lovely Aussie accent, but when she sang, it was nearly impossible to tell that she was from Australia.

          Elton John chose to sing “American” on his own. However, he is a good songwriter and has been in demand for a long time. He’s made a tremendous amount of money from writing and singing. He probably makes more in a year, even now, than you and I have made in our lifetimes, combined.
