I would except that we usually get it requested when one (of 2) singers show up. A girl from the uplands of England does it really well.

Alas, the supper club I play at doesn't allow videos. (legal issues?)

I tried it on one of my valved diatonics. It was good but chromatic is more mellow. That's with me playing, others may do better on diatonic, so no need to fault me.
