Paddy Plastique Ulster Scots Music ? (49) RE: Ulster Scots Music ? 28 Feb 02

I thought this was those Drumcree campsite boyos and girlos back again.
I'd say they're at Spike Milligan's wake, though, Brian rest his soul.
'Ulster Scots' as a term has caused a bit of incredulity recently.
I believe that, through DUP pressure, a post was created at the Stormont Assembly
for an 'Ulster Scots' interpreter - to a bit of derision in some quarters
I also know a bloke from the Ardoyne who, in pre-Troubles days, said he
had a workmate from the country near Ballymena who was virtually
incomprehensible to poor Belfast folk - due to the same lingo.
Obviously there's a musical style to go along with it - unless it was one
o' them Orange marching bands - though I think they'd rather play a gig
in hell itself than get anywhere near auld Papish Rome
