Shetland recordings from the archive of the School of Scottish Studies

1070 archive recordings, made in Shetland by the School of Scottish Studies, are now available online through the Kist o Riches/ Tobar an Dulchais project. This is a substantial and invaluable collection, featuring the voices of Tom Anderson, Brucie Henderson, Jamesie Laurenson, Tom Tulloch and many others.

Subjects include fiddle tunes, songs, stories, reminiscences, tradition and folklore. There are tales of the press gang, trows, njuggles, superstition, rituals, etc.  An excellent listen!
