Subject: RE: Review: Celtic Women on PBS
Two points for AWG. Glad you are here, and welcome. If you take a bit of time and examine some of the old threads you will find that injecting emotion is not something Mudcat is short of.

Also, for AWG, Frank Hamilton IS a good man. And you should Google his name so you realize who he is.

For all of the rest ...... listen to Frank. He has hit it on the head.   Irish music is not a museum piece. This whole idea of "traditional" is a load of bollox. The only thing that is constant and traditional in Irish music is that it will adapt to the times. It's relevance across hundreds of years probably has more to do with the production values of the times than anything else.

They look good, they sound fantastic, they bring honor to the tradition. Undo your collars, loosen your belts, ...... and revel in it.

Le gach dea-mhéin,
