No nitpicking - merely observation.

The Scots and the Irish through their respective cultural traditions hold Ceilidhs. The English through theirs held things in the past that were called "English Country Dances" and of course Morris Dancing. So little known apparently are these English Country Dances, despite the EDFSS in the first part of the 20th Century, that they require a "caller" to lead people through the dances which in themselves are played at a slower tempo than their Scottish and Irish counterparts.
