    they were looking for audience volunteers once and i was desperate to give it a pop, but some bloke beat me to it.

    i love the bag pipes, but they are played by porridge jessies in skirts! (and we invented the northumbrian pipes first!

    As for the english having nothing to offer, what about this, 100s of years of hard fought tradition, and the best in the world

    Thermo what you have given as examples is BRITISH examples not English, so you are still stuck with morris dancing and by the look of them most of them are Ginger beers. :LOL:
