I started this section because of the
many emails I'd received asking me to do an introduction to Scottish and Celtic music.
Like myself these people knew almost nothing about the music, knew none of the so
called big names and found it very difficult to find any music to listen to on the Web.
This is thus my attempt at
bringing you some of the music and background to Scottish and Celtic music.
