Scotland singles dating

After World War II traditional music in Scotland was marginalised, but remained a living tradition.

This marginal status was changed by individuals including Alan Lomax, Hamish Henderson and Peter Kennedy, through collecting, publications, recordings and radio programmes.

The Scottish Chapel Royal was now used only for occasional state visits, as when Charles I returned in 1633 to be crowned, bringing many musicians from the English Chapel Royal for the service, and it began to fall into disrepair.

The fusing of various styles of American music with British folk created a distinctive form of fingerstyle guitar playing known as folk baroque, pioneered by figures including Davey Graham and Bert Jansch.From the late 1970s the attendance at, and numbers of, folk clubs began to decrease, as new musical and social trends began to dominate.However, in Scotland the circuit of ceilidhs and festivals helped prop up traditional music.Many outsiders associate Scottish folk music almost entirely with the Great Highland Bagpipe, which has long played an important part in Scottish music.Although this particular form of bagpipe developed exclusively in Scotland, it is not the only Scottish bagpipe.The earliest mention of bagpipes in Scotland dates to the 15th century although they are believed to have been introduced to Britain by the Roman armies.The pìob mhór, or Great Highland Bagpipe, was originally associated with both hereditary piping families and professional pipers to various clan chiefs; later, pipes were adopted for use in other venues, including military marching.A by-product of the Celtic Diaspora was the existence of large communities across the world that looked for their cultural roots and identity to their origins in the Celtic nations.From the US this includes Scottish bands Seven Nations, Prydein and Flatfoot 56.Piping clans included the Clan Henderson, Mac Arthurs, Mac Donalds, Mc Kays and, especially, the Mac Crimmon, who were hereditary pipers to the Clan Mac Leod.Stringed instruments have been known in Scotland from at least the Iron Age.
