Singing Niamh, with my twiddlybits, or whatever the word was you used to describe ornamentation that weekend!

If I might toss in an opinion on the Sean Nós discussion, "Sean Nós" is singing Irish language songs in the sean nos style.  "Sean nos style," applicable for other languages, means lots of improvised ornamentation, and a nearly complete disregard for rhythm.  Wherever the singer and the song are taking each other is just fine - speed up or slow down, hold a note or chop it off, as the spirit moves.  I don't have an exact source for this, just accumulated listening to Irish trad and a few conversations with Sean Nós singers over the years.

A great pleasure hearing you sing at The Harcourt Dublin Paddy Keenan gig. I really loved hearing your beautiful song about the Virginia country.

My wife says I'm funny!!!! But I sometimes wonder exactly what she means }; ) . Your response is true, as far as what I've been told (Sean Nos: singing in Gaeilge only),...however the style of singing accapela in English with the Sean Nos style confused me: Isn't this a variation of Sean Nos???, or would a stickler for Tradition say "NO!!!".
