Know your Scottish musical history
On this day ... 1st October, 1857, Singer-songwriter and collector Marjory Kennedy-Fraser was born. Her Hebridean song-settings are disdained by many 'traditional' singers nowadays, but they were hugely popular in their time, and are still very atmospheric early-20th century song settings. Just not direct transcriptions of simple Gaelic melodies!
