Sorry, I don't quite get it.  Is this chart meant to be for music produced in the Isle of Man, or sold in the Isle of Man?  I'm assuming the latter because the top artist on the chart is some guy called Varrick Frost, who I have never heard of, who lives in Hamburg, Germany.  Similarly, the No. 2 guy, Ivan Ivanovich, who I have also never heard of, hails from Trier, Germany.  I see there are some home grown Manx groups on the chart like Mec Lir.  How about promoting Manx music by having a chart just for Manx music, and you could maybe call it, er, the Manx Music Chart (just a suggestion)?  Or you could have a chart devoted to German music and call it the Manx Music Chart just to keep people guessing?

Beyond yet another dreary diatonic delivery of Ellan Vannin, what is Manx music?

It's me attempting to play the melodeon in The Mitre in Ramsey on a Friday night.  Audience participation type music.

It's not quite like that.  Before rolling up and playing, you need to be familiar with the Ten Commandments of Jamming, as expounded here:

It's quite amusing to read even if you don't take part in Irish session music.

Ah. I only got to number III before I spotted I might have an issue.

Doesn't sound very Manx.

Well, Celtic then, there's a fair bit of overlap

Because Manx Music is all about sitting in a circle, excluding anyone else, whilst conforming to an arcane set of rules?

Saturday night is Apocalypse Noa which is going to be great, Ransom and the magnificent Post War Stories. Dunno if you'd call them Manx Music, but it is music made in the Isle of Man.

Manx Music seems to be a descriptive device to ease through the poncing of a load of Arts Council cash for pet/vanity projects.
