A Waulking Tour of Scotland - Jo Morrison

$15.00 - In stock - Ships within 24 hours

You are invited on a musical journey of Scotland, from the present to
the past, with several stops along the way.

   A Waulking Tour of Scotland takes listeners on a musical excursion, featuring many styles of Scottish music. Waulking the cloth, work usually done by women, would soften tweed and prepare it for wearing. People would gather around a table and waulk the cloth, pounding it on the table over the course of several hours. Work songs were sung to pass the time and urge the workers on. These songs capture the essence of Scottish life in their words and music, and are used as the mile-stones on this musical journey.
