Show 164 – Scottish

posted in: Past Shows

If you’re expecting Scottish music just to be Robert Burns songs and military pipe bands, you’re in for a treat–because this week, Katie Marie and Joe put together a set of high-energy Scottish bands and music for you. It’s music for carousing, dancing, singing, and enjoying life to the fullest. This week and next, Scotland usually celebrates museums and culture, the BBC hosts a giant pop festival, and the season of highland games commences. Due to the pandemic, these events have been curtailed this year, but for this hour, you can close your eyes and imagine yourself in a small pub in Inverness or listening to the bands and buskers along Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.

This week, we feature the artists: Ann Gray, Mari Black, Karine Polwart, Silly Wizard, Battlefield Band, Harem Scarem, Bannal, Eamon Doorley-Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh-Julie Fowlis-Ross Martin, Alan Reid & Rob van Sante, Gordon Duncan, Bonnie Rideout, The Fire, and Jamie Macdonald & Christian Gamauf.

Our FairPlé score this week: 62
