Gwledd Geltaidd / A Celtic Feast
Book 2 - Scotland
Ailie Robertson


It is a great pleasure to present these arrangements of Scottish traditional music. Scotland has an incredibly rich folkmusic heritage and I hope that this collection will help introduce harpists all over the world to this culture. In Scotland, the Scottish harp or Clarsach (lever harp) is a national instrument known from ancient times. Under the Clan system, the harpists had several functions amongst which was accompanying the Chief into battle, playing for ceremonial occasions and for making soothing music for clan members as they lay down to rest. Music in Scotland varies from area to area and sounds different depending on what part of Scotland you are in. To reflect this diversity I have tried to choose a wide range of tunes from various regions in this collection.
