GUEST,Wolfhound person Folklore: Define English Trad Music (150* d) RE: Folklore: Define English Trad Music 23 Jun 08

Will Taylor definitely looked north rather than south in his playing. In fact he once remarked that Scottish music was merely a subset of Northumbrian music - to the amused consternation of his audience.

And any list of fiddlers that includes Dave Swarbrick should surely include Colin Ross - described once as one of the two revival fiddlers at folk festivals(in about 196-something).

The OP might be more confused than helped by recordings from the Northumbrian tradition if southern English is actually his goal.
