Can anyone Explain Why
Why, Oh Why….
… do folks play a Slow Air followed by a Strathspey and a Reel????? Why is it the accepted norm.
In my humble opinion it is the weirdest thing, (and I really dont like it)..It is like following La Traviata with a Benny Hill sketch. The passion, grace and meaning of a slow air requires a reflection, a pause, a sigh….not an immediate leap into some sort of comic slapstick scratchy squeaky jiggyness..
I just dont get it!!
Right I have vented.
Crawling back under my rock to the smooth whispers of a delicate air drifting on the autumn breeze.
