Robyn Stapleton, a BBC Traditional Singer of the Year, partners the historian David Purdie to trace the story of the Scots nation through its songs. For a thousand years Scotland’s history and music has intertwined the Norse of the Northern Isles, the Gaelic of the Highlands and Islands, plus Anglo-Saxon traditions into a heritage unique in Europe. Songs of peace and war, ballads from border straths and highland glens, and songs of men and women: the Meeting, the Loving and the Parting. Robyn’s beautiful singing and David’s fascinating words are supported by glorious images of Scotland.
