Scottish Music - Traditional and Modern

In the Highlands, the Clan Chief's household included not only the bard (an hereditary position with chieftain standing), but a harper, piper and even someone to carry the piper's bagpipes!

Scottish music is the very breath of life to highlanders, with traditional Gaelic songs for every imaginable task and occasion. As early as the 12th century, the highlands had a reputation as the fountainhead of the art of music. That ever-evolving tradition lives on in Scottish music today, keeping many of it's traditional aspects, and undeniably influencing many other musical styles.

Choose from Celtic music, traditional Scottish bagpipe music, or modern Scottish folk-rock and new age music.
