Is ITM Insular?
Before you wisecrack, "You dummy, Ireland is an island," what I mean is:
Played today, ought Irish music sessions play only Irish (O’Neil’s type stuff)? Or can (and do) Scottish, Quebecois, perhaps even Appalachian (wink) creep in?
I’m honestly asking as a poor ignorant Connecticut Yankee.
And never do I think old time or bluegrass has a place in a session, but what about crossover tunes?
This discussion spawned off of a discussion on ITM backing in Appalachian style.
