School of Scottish Studies

Whilst looking researching (if that's what you call it) the previous post, I found this resource in the School of Scottish Studies: recordings of songs, music, folk tales and historical facts from all around Scotland.

Link to the Archive of recordings. Sorted by 'type'.

I'm off to listen to this one by Affleck Gray and the strange happenings at the Corrour Bothy; sleeping in caves in the Cairngorms in the 1920's. He was 87 when the recording was made. Link

The SSS are a fab bunch - you can go and listen to the actual tapes live down at Edinburgh Uni if you feel like it - the Celtic Dept and they share offices. The librarian is very nice. I bumped into Duncan Chisholm in February there this year, he was doing research for what would turn out to be 'Scotland's Music'!!

I'll wait for the podcasts.

IIRC, it's the last of the Phil Cunningham series on Saturday (and repeated later in week?)
