This is only an issue of curiosity. Many notions about Irish Trad invoke "the dancers". How many of you actually play for dancers? What kind of dancers ie. competitive dancers in curly wigs, sean nos, ceili? Where, when, and how often does this happen? Is it real or is "for the dancers" more of a yardstick? Is it possible that "the dancers" is a kind of all-purpose argument, a subtext for "do it my way"? These are just questions about your experience. In my area most of the dancing is Contra, and not very skilled at that, with Scandi, and English Country/Scottish tied for 2nd. The dance schools generally avoid live musicians. Hopefully your experience is greater and more frequent than mine and I’d just like to know about it. Thanks.
