Album Remarks & Appraisals:

When you talk about Scottish music, many immediately think of the great Highland bagpipe; a lone piper playing a haunting lament or a full military regiment blasting out a rousing march, an undeniably proud tradition and perhaps the country’s most representative image worldwide, Scotland also boasts an incredibly rich folk music tradition. Instruments such as the harp (clàrsach) and fiddle, as well as English and Gaelic songs and ballads, are central to the Scottish identity. This collection highlights a wide variety of Scottish music, from the mighty bagpipe to ballads and waulking songs.
