"The Greig-Duncan Folk Song Collection" from North-East Scotland, created in the early years of the twentieth century by Gavin Greig and James Bruce Duncan, is of national and international importance. In its published form it contains 1,933 songs, available in eight volumes arranged thematically. This selection for performers contains 150 songs from the main collection, and takes as its focus 28 of the singers from whom the songs were originally collected. All the singers lived at (or had a connection with) a range of locations in North-East Scotland, and biographical information on them has been gleaned from field research and archives. The book is designed primarily for performers: it is organized by singer, with editorial notes on each song. The selection covers a range of themes, and includes both folksongs and ballads. The book will be of interest to traditional singers, schools and universities that teach Scots song, and those interested in the culture and social history of North-East Scotland. A CD of a selection of the songs accompanies the book.
