GUEST,Captain Swing Use of Piano in folk/trad music? (92* d) RE: Use of Piano in folk/trad music? 13 Nov 12


Traditions, by their very nature, grow and develop. If they don't they are not traditions. There is no logical reason why any instrument (acoustic, electric, electronic) should not be permissible in traditional forms of music. There are so many examples where an instrument from one culture is subsumed into the traditions of another, eg the tenor banjo in Irish music.
