Do you like the Traditional Irish music because of the music or because it is Irish?
The quality of the Trad Irish music at various sessions can, of course, vary considerably. Sometimes it’s absolutely cooking and, frankly, as we all know, sometimes it can be hard work and a bit dismal!
But there are those amongst us (musos and *billies) who are blind/ deaf as to whether it is good or not as they love it regardlessly. Simply because it is Irish.
I want to play GOOD MUSIC. If it happens to be Irish, great. I never want to play sub-standard music even if it is Irish.
