On this page you can listen to samples from some of the recordings in our Scots Songs and Ballads series. Most of them are full tracks rather than small snippets. We hope that you enjoy them and perhaps, just perhaps, you might be tempted to buy the CDs. We think they are very special. All of the singers have individual voices, just like any human being, but they share common links to the Scots singing tradition. If you enjoy any one of them, there is a good chance that you will enjoy all of them, so buy at least one CD and see where it leads you!
