    Any other Scots?

    I received an email with details of this site http://www.scotchsnap.com/ a new e-commerce, sheet music publishing platform specifically aiming to promote the work of composers of Scottish origin or living in Scotland.

    From the email;

    "The website launched in June with 1,000+ pieces of music of Scottish origin, embracing the whole range of musical genre. Nearly 40 composers are already onboard including some well-known names in the classical, jazz, traditional and gaelic music scenes. It is our aim to show the full diversity of Scotland's musical output. We have a real vision for offering Scottish composers better access to the world-wide sheet music market by actively promoting their work.
    There is no cost to the composers who already have sheet music scores in "Sibelius" format. If you don't have music in this format we can arrange transcription at competitive rates. We offer each composer 30% of their sheet music sales, a free profile page with photo, a list of pieces available on scotchsnap.com, and links to their own website for further details of CDs, concerts/gigs etc."

    Not much use to me publishing tenor banjo scores but it might interest some of you.

    Not a Scot, but a Celt! And I like Scotch Whiskey (Talisker anyone? Highland Park?)
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Highland Park is in my opinion the best whisky there is. All those wasted years before I discovered it...

    Are you still considered a Scott, if you are also Irish, English, Welsh, Scandinavian, French, German, and who knows what else?

    The Welsh are the Irish who couldn't swim. The Scots are the Irish who could swim, but couldn't spell whiskey. so basically had to go.

    I think some of my relatives were driven out of Ireland by St Patrick.

    Aye, yer barkin' up the right tree here. Clan Campbell, descendant of Duke of Argyll. (Also Irish, Welch, English, and Dutch.) Years back, I played at highland games and spent time with Scottish harpers. Not quite ready for these services you mention but the time will come. Thanks for the post!

    Descended from McLeod on one side of the family; Ukranian on the side. Can they just look at me from the left or right...?
