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.
