GUEST,Geordie Respecting tradition: Scots a model? (33) RE: Respecting tradition: Scots a model? 31 Mar 03

I find this an interesting thread and as I am no expert on "traditions" I will make an inexpert observation. I believe that those cultures which respect tradition are normally those in danger of losing it and therefore do not take it for granted. If it is a struggle to keep a thing alive people will do what they can to preserve it. Hence the disregard, in some quarters, for traditional English music, whereas the celts had to defend the tradition and as a result have respected it. Just a thought.
