Re: Highland Shortbread

A mixture of old and new tunes, most from Scotland. I also wonder why this album was not on The Session.

Re: Highland Shortbread

It does have an unfortunate title but I’ve just had listen and the music is actually very good of its kind.

Of course, the style is more sedate and what you might expect to encounter more on the Scottish Dance music/Fiddle and Accordion rather than in your regular trad session or more modern bands.
However, there’s nothing wrong with the music or tunes though and it’s not really what I’d have described as "Tartan" either.

Re: Highland Shortbread

I don’t think the title is unfortunate. I love shortbread.
