Subject: RE: virtuosity and traditional music
I am sorry that Geoff Wallis was offended by my spelling. Joe Heaney was, indeed, a great "shanos" singer. (I don't know how to write those cool accent marks and, besides, if b-u-r-d doesn't spell bird, what does it spell?) My comments were about the style, not the artist. Even so fervent a Celtie (That's like a Trekie with a brogue) as Geoff Wallis would have to admit that Mr. Heaney's performances had limited appeal outside of a fla-kyool.
