At a healthy 77minutes, we try to cover every aspect of Scottish traditional music and no one is ever going to get this 100% to suit all tastes or style descriptions, but this is a rather bold attempt that also keeps the entertainment value high. We have tried to follow a 'time-line' effect right from the start with the clarsach (harp) through to 'folk-rock'.
A strong starting point for beginners.
