Thread Name: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Subject: RE: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
One of the problems is the shift away from the vocal side to purely instrumental music, This leads to little groups of people who are reasonably proficient playing to/with themselves.
Unlike Ireland, we no longer have a strong dance tradition to back this up.
Public participation was the magic ingredient in the revival and the need to connect socially is there and still very necessary.
Will has a point of sorts, but would be well advised to moderate his language if he wishes to advance it.
If Guest Observer sees my point in this discussion then I know I must be on the right road, as his/her views have my utmost respect on most subjects.
