This information is being passed on courtesy of RSC NewsFeed - eNews from the JISC Regional Support Centres in Scotland. The rich heritage of Scotland’s song tradition is now appearing online courtesy of Learning and Teaching Scotland. Here you’ll find lyrics, tunes and recording for more than 130 songs in Scots and Gaelic. At Scotland’s Songs you can discover the richness of our traditional songs and music, understand themes in Scottish music and find out more about Scotland’s instruments, like the bagpipes and the clarsach. And in a companion piece from the same source you can enjoy Scotland’s Stories. As the site says, Scotland is a treasure house of stories, myths and legends and on this site you’ll fins a selection of Scotland’s finest all beautifully illustrated and developed with the help of the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
