There's a lot of that that goes around, Joe.  I play a fair amount of 
American Old-Time music and when I was jamming in English pubs with 
the English who played old-time I was amazed at how they chose such 
old chestnuts that no Old-time player in this country would touch 
with a barge pole.  In Irish restaurants and bars back in the 
eighties they liked to play American country-western from which most 
players in this country would run away screaming.  It made me wonder 
what Irish folks would make of American Celtic band's repetory.

I think we forget how cool our own native musical genres are because 
we grew up with them.
