Drumshanty Unaccompanied Singers (82* d) RE: Unaccompanied Singers 21 Apr 08

Dictionary of the Scots Language defines "dreich" as "Extensive; lasting, tedious, tiresome, slow"!

And Muckle Sangs. Mind you, I don't mean the "great ballads" exclusively - or, indeed, those sung in Scots, or Scottish songs. As I said, I love to get swept up in a big chorus, but I've got many songs on my list that I wouldn't sing in a singaround for fear of being thought selfish for not including everyone else.

This is just my experience and not a general point. I'm talking about the vast singarounds I've been to at festivals in Scotland. The very few that I've been to at Whitby or Saltburn have not left me feeling like this.
