Stivell, the trouble is, is barmy on the subject of "Celticness", and can't recognise any musical communications historically that dont fit his theories. This limits him is a source of useful information or opinion. I'm judging him by what I know of his public utterances, I've not met him. He may be a little more subtle in person...I would very much like to find out. But basically, if you believe Scotland and Brittany have a lot in common culturallly, but that Scotland and England don't: you're several sandwiches short of a picnic(or three reels short of a fest noz).
