Okay, here's a good question for discussion. How would you describe the "swing" 
or the "lilt" in Irish dance music? Or is there one at all? The guys (and I do 
mean guys, I'm the only female) in the group I play with need to know, as we 
are in disagreement. The most experienced Irish session player among us, claims 
that 4/4 time in say, a reel, is simply played straight, like a march, but that 
you imply the swing with the accents.

What say ye?

(Congratulations, Victoria, you do my alma mater proud!)
