Thread Name: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Subject: RE: Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music?
Phil Cunningham and many others compose new tunes in a traditional style or idiom.

Many others who may also be traditional players and musicians or have have a background in this music compose new music and partake in projects where the style of music is not remotely like this.

Nothing wrong with them doing this, of course, but a description such as "Contemporary Traditional Scottish Music" is too wide sweeping in my opinion and doesn't really tell us very much.
