Out of the Box

Attracting much attention and derision elsewhere

It looks like one of those ersatz folkie novelty acts aimed at the market outside the folk scene.

D'ye mean like a balding concertina player in a blouse? Ah'm seyin' nuthin' aboot him wearin' his wife's socks.
Catskinner

Naw.

Us baldy concertina players usually only get to foist ourselves on real folky audiences.

They're the only ones with the patience and good manners to listen.

I know you have a fairly 'original' sense of fashion but I've yet to see you in a blouse.
Rid Sonja

I was wondering about that myself...do tell Caty, I'm sure we would all like to hear that story....
Jim King

Me too. I think I may have heard him referred to as a big girl's blouse but I don't recall seeing him in one.
East Coaster

Somehow, I don't think Onny is referring to Catskinner. I could make a good guess as to whom though!

cheese
Rid Sonja

Ah, but are you sure Easty? I mean, there's quite a lot of fun to be had imagining Cat in a blouse...you wouldn't want to take our fun away, would you?? alien

Oh he's sure. I can still recall the sharp intake of breath from the audience when we saw the offending article.

Cat in a blouse, surely it would have to be pink, with fluffy cuffs and collar and a wee emblem on the pocket depicting `oh, I say` flower

You can add me to the deriders, I don't think he's that fast either or in that much control of his instrument.

Welllll, he does like to play it on his head and swing about as if he were its dance partner, Steve.  I didn't see you do that!

And I loved the intro..he is both innovative and traditional. laughing3

Huff!  I have more respect for the integrity of the music (and my shoulders).

Integrity? But that's because you have integrity.... bom  bom
