Bluebells of Scotland

Songs MusiciansSongbook – $15 –

Here is a Celtic album, for the lover of Scottish music, that encompasses most of the musical stylings from the five distinct regions of Scotland; the Lowlands, Border Uplands, Shetland Islands, the Hebrides, and the famous Highlands.
This album is extremely diversified, with the slow aires and laments being done with hammered dulcimer, harp, cello, and wooden flute, to create an almost classical feel to the tunes. The more up-tempo tunes again feature Tim Crouch and DeeAnn Gillispie on fiddle, Bob Bielefeld on fife and penny whistle, and Bob Murphy on lead guitar and tenor banjo. At the time of this recording, Featherstone featured Cindy Tellone on bass violin, and Albee Tellone on guitar and superb mandolin harmonies.

Last but not least, there are some great Highland Bagpipes on three tunes with bodhran and snare drum for percussive highlights. The hammered dulcimer is the main instrument, as always. If you want to order it, just click here.

Special Thanks to
Dr. Bill McNeil of the OZARK FOLK CENTER, for the history of the tunes.
