Subject: RE: Vibrant UK folk music scenes
I have once seen a young bloke with a drum kit in a Scottish session - it was an electronic one, so he could turn the volume down to match the instruments in an average-sized unamplified group.

Since most Scottish dance music has most often been played in lineups with either a kit or a snare and cymbal for the last century, and he knew what he was doing, it added a lot of precision and bounce, getting the music much closer to the way it was meant to go than in a typical amateur session. I wish there were more like him.
