'Whittaker' has been trying to avoid his research between Christmas and Hogmanay, but without a great deal of success. As his Diigo pages reveal ...
Still, here are a few links that might interest musicians, actors, dancers and theatrical production folks:-
- Scots Language Centre = Centre for the Scots Leid - find out the meanings of those obscure Scots words, and learn why 'Smirr' is such an apt word for Glaswegian weather conditions.
- BBC Radio 3 - Music Feature, The Practice of Practising - Stephen Hough talks about practising (28 December 2013)
- Attending a Ball at an Assembly Room: Georgian Assembly Rooms, Part Two - learn why Bath assemblies were so much a part of Regency social life at this Jane Austen website (austenonly.com). (Did you know Minuets came at the start of the the evening, then Country Dancing later on? Or that other assembly rooms preferred Cotillions to Minuets?)
