Andrew Wighton: Scottish music books

Do you know about the Wighton Centre, Dundee Central Library's historic Scottish music book collection?

Andrew Wighton collected Scottish music books in the mid-19th century, and gifted his collection to the City of Dundee.  A specially dedicated Centre has recently been built to house his music and promote Scottish music events.

The Friends of Wighton support the Centre.  Find out more here

(There is also a Wighton Database; but sadly, it's not up and running just now. Watch this space - 'Whittaker' will let you know if (when) it is resurrected.  It was a really, REALLY useful resource, so hopefully it won't be down for long.)
