Ditto Diato.

I first saw the term "diato" thirty years ago when first exposed to French diatonic accordeon.

Diato.net has a nice ring to it. Beautifully obscure.
not so obscure for some of us  ;)

Hello Ronald,
As Canada has historical connections with England, is there any evidence of English music being taken out there?
Thanks
Hugh

There's lots of English, Irish and Scottish derived music on the East coast: Nova Scotia, Labrador and Newfoundland.

There's a small group of musicians at the core of the Mill Race Festival of Traditional Music in Cambridge, ON who definitely include English music in their repertoire. That's partly because some of them are ex-pat English, but it includes the festival director who has always been Canadian.

Canada also has several morris teams....

There's also a good traditional music scene on the West Coast. I have friends on Vancouver Island and as well as the usual "Irish" music, there are a good few Morris and Sword (If I remember rightly) sides in BC and English music is played, though mainly by certain of the Morris musicians. A very friendly bunch!  :||: :|||: :M :|glug

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Yes I know about Scottish music in Nova Scotia from the Scottish diaspora, but I was wondering whether there was a similar English diaspora. It would be good to think that English music and song could eventually have 'Transatlantic Sessions' similar to the Aly Bain fronted programs on TV that features Scottish and Irish music. What we need is a charismatic person to push something like that forward to give the English tradition some exposure!

There was plenty of English music (including six Morris teams) in Ontario last summer. They also did a smattering of French/Euro, and had booked Trio D'hoore
