If the show is anything like the incredibly hyped album I bought awhile
back, there's nothing I can see about it that is particularly traditional in
any tradition with which I'm familiar. And we're not just talking whether
or not his style (like Seamus Egan's--the one not being sued (at least,
yet)--banjo playing) fits some old-fart (yes, I admit it, that describes me)
definition of traditional.
