Subject: RE: Oldtime Musicals . . . What Were They Ca
Well in Gaelic-speaking communities it was/still is called a 'ceilidh', but I expect you already knew that. I've been to several in the past on Skye and Lewis, and even in Glasgow. They involve songs, recitations, dancing and---lots of whisky! Each person is expected to have a party piece (a story or song for example) Lovely evening's entertainment.
