Thread Name: Sean Nos - Old Style Singing
Subject: RE: Sean Nos - Old Style Singing

Does macaronic refer to songs that mix Irish and English, or does it actually refer to the style of singing.... lyrical, melody varied with every verse, stretched rhythm, flat dynamic, unaccompanied, and other sean nos syle characteristics being applied to an English language song.

The trip to Rosslare sounds wonderful, please report the details here.
