Product Description

Scotland's music is an evolving story of originality and musicianship evoking life in the highlands and islands, the farm, the tenements and now increasingly the cosmopolitan city streets. Celebrate the contemporary sounds of Lau, Admiral Fallow and Karine Polwart alongside classic craft from The Campbells Of Greepe and Kathleen MacInnes.

Bonus CD: Cliar - 'Cliar'

There are few bands in the world with the ability to represent their country's history - hundreds of years of language, culture, music, song and storytelling - so powerfully. Cliar, a six-piece band based in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, captures the essence of Scotland's Gaelic history and presents it on stage and on their albums in a way which leaves no doubt about their place at the leading edge of traditional Scottish music.

A mix of modern and traditional Celtic fare 3 May 2003
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The third Scottish RG collection veers decisively into softer, mellower territory, although there are a few surprises, such as the steel pan drums on Robert Mathieson's "Calypso." Old standbys such as Capercaillie, Boys of the Lough, Christine Primrose and the Battlefield Band are present, as well as a few lesser-known folkies. This set's a bit too soft and modern for my tastes, but I'm sure many folk fans will find plenty to enjoy here. Worth checking out.

Not bad 6 Oct. 2005

Format: Audio CD
I enjoy the music, the Irish is better. This line of "Rough Guide" definitely gives the distinctive flavor of a variety of cultures. Very cool!
