Taking a Break with Eighteenth-Century Scottish Music

folk music, music, Scotland, James Oswald, Robert Mackintosh, Thomas Erskine

If, like me, you are tired of looking for Scottish emigrants and ancestors but still feel the need to something historical and research-y, then listen to Keeping it "Reel". This podcast from Harmonia Early Music features the compositions of  James Oswald, Robert Mackintosh, and Thomas Erskine, 6th Earl of Kellie. A list of the tunes performed and their cds are included with the podcast notes.  

If you want to listen to more Scottish and Celtic early music, scroll about halfway down the page to the box that searches Harmonia Early Music (as opposed to the search box at the top of the page with searches all of Indiana Public Media). Enter Scotland in the search box, hit enter, and many results will appear including a program on Robert Mackintosh and another on Music for Celtic Saints.

Happy Listening!
