Re: Horizontigo

hmmmm - I just wonder why this weird ‘not polka’ tune are flashed on this site. Kris Drever is english, and the tune are not in irish, scottish, gaelic mode, and I think it’s a bit boaring, well - maybe I’m just grumpy, but I think the tune sucks…..sorry

Re: Horizontigo

You are quite entitled not to like the tune, and say so, but as a straightforward matter of fact, Kris Drever is from the Orkney islands, about as far north within the "British Isles" as you can get from England - [ unless you’re from Shetland - where I believe he is living these days ] .

Re: Horizontigo

Well Kenny, you are right, Kris is From the Orkney Islands. Bad research from my site,
but still I don’t think this tune has nothing to do on thesession.org.

I know there are a lot extraneous tunes on this site, which are not even Irish/Scottish sounding -
but I think the intention for this site is trad. Irish/Scottish music.

If it should be new composed contemperary music, at least it should sound like ‘trad.’
……..grump, grump, grump 😉

Re: Horizontigo

Quite happy to "grump" along with you, "ceili", but I gave up on it years ago, certainly here on this site. Live and let live. Our "extraneous" are other peoples’ "fantastic". Play the music you like and ignore the rest. Musical evolution will delete the dross in time.
All the best. Kenny
