    Mary Anne Alburger
A history of the art, illustrated with photographs and music examples - giving over 100 complete reels, strathspeys, laments and slow airs. Mary Anne Alburger's admirable study documents the development of the tradition for more than half a millennium from the fiddlers on James IV's payroll, through the manuscript and published collections of the 17th century to the traditional players and composers of the 20th century. Extended treatment is given to such outstanding composers as Niel and Nathaniel Gow, William Marshall, Simon Fraser and James Scott Skinner. The new public for this music, both inside and outside Scotland, will find this book especially informative. Hardback edition available by special request.
