My reference to bagpipes was in no way aimed at you as I certainly
wouldn't define Scottishness in such a closed way.  However, there is
significant interest on this list in traditional music--which is what
I was referring to.  My only crime was to say that's not my big
interest.  I was certainly not pigeonholing you, nor those with
musical interest.
 
My raising the issue of cultural affiliation as a discussion topic
has certainly touched on some raw nerve.  Perhaps my next difficult
question should be 'why all the defensiveness'?
 
still surfing the wave of invective,
Angela
