Thread Name: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Subject: RE: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Re the thread title "Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?"

It could have been more specific but they don't give you much space to elaborate in the title section.

However, within my first two or three posts I hoped that I had clarified my intentions sufficiently. The thread wasn't intended to be about the actual music itself whatever we decided the description meant but more the use of language. To me, such a term is certainly misleading, uninformative, and as others have stated, an oxymoron.

With all forms of music, there is some I like and some I don't for various reasons but that's not my main concern here. Obviously, discussions will "drift" but I'm a little saddened that this thread has now just become a slanging match against younger musicians and also between some members.
