This site has significant
recorded input from various educational sources and agencies,
particularly from present and past students of the National Centre
for Excellence in Plockton, from The New Makars Trust, and the US Alan
Lomax Archive. New tracks have been specially recorded by harpist
Heather Yule, by North East singer Lillian Ross, by song group Tryst
and by Ewan McVicar.
Recordings made by
Katherine and Colin Campbell and others for Traditional Scottish
Songs & Music are used. Much use is being made of recordings
from self-released CDs by Scots performers, and from commercial
issues from Greentrax. Performers in a wide range of styles and
musical genres include the Kiltearn Fiddlers, Christine Kydd, Jeannie
Robertson, Ceolbeg, the Mick West Band, various army pipe bands,
Alison McMorland and Geordie MacIntyre, Gill Bowman, Two's Company,
Bob Pegg, Fiddler s Bid, the Linties, Ullapool High School, Jean
Redpath, Jock Duncan, Hamish Henderson, Gordeanna MacCulloch, Dick
Gaughan, Andy Thorburn, the Chorus Quartet, plus many archive
recordings of local singers and musicians and of 'live' performances.
This site is created and maintained by Ewan McVicar.
This site is to replace the Education Scotland Scotland's Songs site that was 'taken down' in January 2017.
