This Rough Guide collection features some of Scotland’s finest musicians, from the exquisite fiddling of Aly Bain with his teacher Tom Anderson to the Highland bagpipes of John D. Burgess and the traditional harp playing of Alison Kinnaird. Gaelic song has never died and is represented here, as are also the English language songs from the industrial south of Scotland.
