As firmly rooted in Celtic consciousness as the blues are in America's South, mouth music is vocal music made for dancing when there aren't instruments or trained musicians around. A rhythmic, music unlike any other. We will be listening to a number of pieces of mouth music from a new definitive collection that includes over 60 pages of photos and information describing the 37 historical mouth music recordings.

Scottish mouth music greatest period of growth came during the late nineteenth-century religious revivals when Calvinist ministers forbade indegenous music. Church hostility to traditional music saw violins, pipes and harps thrown onto bonfires even into this century.
