"Canntaireachd is something totally different, and isn't really intended as a performing art"
I don't think any of this was ever intended as a performing art; I was under the impression that it was all originally functional, to make up for the lack of instruments and that the interest as performance came when those functions ceased
Isn't it the same with shanties and waukling songs ?
