Folk music Scotland

Folk singers tell stories about life, love, liberty – and often politics. Scottish folk has evolved from simple guitars to incorporate a rich blend of traditional and contemporary instruments. Celtic styles have come back into the spotlight, with many bands singing in Gaelic. Top acts like Capercaillie and Runrig fuse folk and rock together to bring Gaelic music to a much wider audience throughout the UK.
