English trad sessions
I’ve had a listen to a Dave Swarbrick record, which is very unusual for me as I am really listening almost exclusively to Irish trad and have been doing so for years. Now, the whole world of "English trad" is unknown to me, but I have heard that such a thing exists, moreover that there are English trad sessions in England, so I’m going to ask this question out of curiosity and no lack of respect to other musical cultures.
On his record ("rags, reels and airs") there are several tunes that are part of the common Irish repertoire (a discussion of their origins - born in Ireland or borrowed - is besides the point of my question - please do not take it there). The point is that I am used to hear them in a certain style and Swarbrick is playing them very differently. My question is: should I ever stray into an English trad session, should I expect the same? I.e., some tunes that I’d know would be played but in such a different style?
