Description

Freeland Barbour was brought up in Highland Perthshire and has been a very well-known figure on the Scottish music scene for many years. He is a former member of ground-breaking folk group Silly Wizard, and a founder member of two of the country's most successful ceilidh dance bands, the Wallochmor Ceilidh Band and the Occasionals. His compositions for Scottish dancing are hugely popular and have been recorded and performed all over the world. In this book he recalls his life in music, presenting a tour in words, photographs and musical notation through the lands that have inspired him - covering the whole of Scotland and beyond. His compositions are gathered here with the work of some of Scotland's leading photographers, in a book that is a both an invaluable resource for the working musician and wonderful tribute to Scotland's landscape and traditions.
