The Rough Guide to Scottish Folk (Third Edition)


With its wonderfully rich and diverse heritage, Scottish folk music is constantly evolving while remaining deeply rooted in the past. From pioneering revivalists Battlefield Band and Karen Matheson to today's leading voices including Julie Fowlis and Karine Polwart, this handpicked selection reflects a golden age in this living tradition.

It's an album with a beautiful blend of traditional meets contemporary highlighting the new generation of musicians eager to build on the skills of their forebears. It's the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest living traditions - from the city streets to the Highlands and islands with classic instrumental tunes to beautifully crafted songs.
