Seriously though Diane - you're a fiddle player, didn't you say?

surely that's the whole point of playing a fiddle or a guitar - you play along with whatevers going on, whatever the temperature of the water is - and its folk music.

Any port in a storm, any wifty wafty snigger snogger on the microphone. And if its not folk music before you start, you bloody well turn it into folk music. Folk music is an ever expanding empire and the hits of Daniel O'Donnel is our last territorial demand.
