"Show of Hands (whom I like hugely, so this is not a criticism) might be better described as 'English alt-country'"
Though, I must admit, I am not a fan of Show of Hands, this probably the bet description of their music I've ever read.
The Jimmy Shand Band, I've always been lead to believe, were/are Scottish Country Dance, this does open up a debate I think, about the definition of the word country in music. If you add the national label to country ie Scottish Country Dance, does this help with the definition?
