Musicians ‘singing back to life’ forgotten Galloway folk music

Some 80 traditional musical arrangements sourced from across Scotland in the early 20th century have been discovered, and contemporary musicians are breathing new life into them . . .

 “It’s something that’s really important to me, to encourage people to sing and to bring these local songs to life so they’re not lost,” said [musician Robyn] Stapleton.

“We have got some fantastic songs that I have been working on personally and I am looking forward to be able to perform songs that people haven’t heard before.
