gnu, thanks for posting a link to that YouTube video. Here are two comments that I added to that video's comment section:

He's slated to do a concert soon with Gordon Belsher in Quebec to support their upcoming tour which includes Ontario and Alberta.and also support the Apple Hollow Music Fest that occurs annually in July.
I loved Richard Wood's hearing uptempo fiddle playing. Besides being a great player, Richard Woods has great stage presence!

I've read that American tap started as a combination of African American dancing and Celtic dancing but that one major difference is that in Celtic dancing the upper body is held stiff. I'm wondering is the arm swaying in 1:03 of this video a departure from traditional dancing and if there are other contemporary changes in this dancing. Such changes are fine with me-I'm just curious about this. Thanks again!
Could anybody here weigh in on that question about the dancing? Maybe I shouldn't have written "weigh in" as how much you weigh is your own business :o)
But I am curious about that question about Celtic dancing.
And not at all by the way, this years' Apple Hollow Music Fest sounds great! I'm sure that all those attending this festival will have a good time.
