I would add that some of the "modern" stuff that I hear at Scottish
Country Dances actually makes the music less danceable, and less
exciting to move to. It's the pianists, particularly, that too often
fall prey to this, when they play (too much) in a way that does not
support the fiddle(s) and the dancers rhythmically.
