LINKS

The internet is brimming over with sites about traditional music and you can listen and watch all manner of things on YouTube and Myspace sites.  Beware, some of it is rubbish and the rest will  just use up valuable playing time.  So the links here are a small selection which you may find interesting or useful.  Don't stay too long, go and play something.
