I’m a new member (but a lurker for some time). My main interest is in sean-nós singing, but I’ve been playing fiddle for about six years and I’m trying to understand some things better. I was going through the discussions about marches, and I’m still confused. It seems that marches can be called a jig, reel, polka, barndance, hornpipe, etc. Is it simply that it’s a march if the title says it’s a march? Sorry for the confusion, folks; I’d just like to figure this out. Go raibh maith agaibh!
