jimmyt Origins: traveller influence in Celtic music (9) RE: Origins: traveller influence in Celtic music 29 Sep 08

Yes, I am an American, Jim and thanks for all the info. Thanks also Gedpipes for the correction in my spelling on the Uilleann pipes. Perhaps we should have a spelling bee. SOrry to be obtuse, but what is the correct catch-all name for what I described as (Celtic?) I am referring to traditional music from Ireland and Scotland. Is that a better nomenclature?

I still am trying to get a handle on this, let me rephrase. Is traveller music a seperate genre performed by travellers, and does the traveller musical community have their own music? If not, are travellers integrated in to performing with non-travellers in playing essentially Irish or Scottish traditional music in a homogenous blend of musicians, both travellers and non-travellers? Have I just made this more confusing?
