Your worst "traditional" music concert
What’s the worst concert you’ve been to, that’s been billed as a traditional music concert?
I was at a concert last night, at which a "fiddle" player was playing traditional music - the only problem being, that he wasn’t - he was a classical player who’d switched to traditional music around 4 years ago. Now, I wouldn’t normally have gone to see an ex-classical player playing traditional music, but there was a huge amount of hype before-hand which enticed me along.. "……traditional fiddle champion of…….., has toured the USA extensively for the last 4 years…. broadcast frequently on the "Thistle and Shamrock" radio show." etc, etc. I thought "sounds interesting…must be worth a look"
I heard not a SINGLE note of traditional music at that concert, despite the fact that sets of tunes from Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec were played. I DID hear good classical technique, but that was all, nothing more. There were other visual matters, which, shall we say, nearly made me break my sides laughing.
So, what’s the worst "traditional" music concert you’ve ever been to.
