Taconicus Trying to remember singing style name (4) Trying to remember singing style name 10 Feb 12

There's a certain style of traditional Scottish (and I think Irish) a cappella folk singing style that I'm trying to remember the name of. It's characterized by a kind of stepwise note singing. I don't know how else to describe it - a single word can be sung with several different notes in succession; not sliding but discrete notes. In a way, the voice accomplishes its own melodic "instrumental" accompaniment. Does anyone remember what that singing style is called?
