Default Re: Piobaireachd geek?

What is sad about this lovely music is that it has been turned – over about the past 100 years – into the preserve of a certain kind of geekdom and nerdishness. By contrast, one would not call someone a geek or nerd who was “into” Irish slow airs or Scottish “big ballads”.

Fortunately, there are some cracks in the concrete.
