Thread Name: virtuosity and traditional music
Subject: RE: virtuosity and traditional music
yes, Galways playing is a stylistic matter,before he played classical music he played in fife and drum bands,he learned to play traditional music[fife and drum is part of the orange tradition,but its still a tradition] in a certain ulster style,it is just as valid as a waterford style or any other, whether its hornpipes for lancashire clog or Westmorland clog[two very different styles].,
O ,brien moran is showing his ignorance by making remarks like that,the only wrong way to play a hornpipe, or any other dance tune is if the dancers cant dance to it.
