There are still a few youngsters in England too. I think it's important to keep other countries' traditions alive as well as Celtic (and is there really a unified Celtic tradition - but htat's for another thread).
A young fly-by a feew months ago - one Eliza Carthy - also felt it was imortant to be playing English music as well as Euro-celtique.
Not sure what the equivalent is in the USA.
Oh, yes, my daughter has been here for research too. Her electric band's website is www.torniquet.freeserve.co.uk
