Yes, but according to you, YOU risk being charged of "going equipped" in posession of your particular voice...

Hey, if providing facilities (eg a piano) is going to be licensable, where does that leave people known to sing or dance? They carry the facilities with them...

It strikes me that the stark difference between the Scottish approach and the English/Welsh model is that in Scotland there is a presumption of permission to make music, unless told otherwise. In England and Wales the presumption will be that you must have a licence except in certain circumstances. Glass half full, glass half empty.
