Pardon my ignorance, and enlighten me….
The idea of sets in Irish music… you know 2-3 tunes in a row…
In my "studies" of early American fiddling I found that for dancing it was usually ONE tune traditionally (say pre 1900)—- it seems that in the early 1900s sometimes and only sometimes theyd play 2 tunes together…. but it wasnt common either. (all this based on my limited research.)
Is this similar with Irish music historically? Seems like it must be something relatively new?
