This book covers the dance music of Scotland, its historical place in Scottish life, its characteristics, instruments and identity. It gives life to the musicians, at all levels of society, that have applied their creative skills to its composition and performance from antiquity to the present. The book profiles Scottish music in the context of Europe and the British Isles and delineates its contribution to that musical heritage which, blended with Irish traditions, has evolved new mutants wherever these cultural streams have migrated.
