About this product

60 years after noted taper Alan Lomax set foot on Scottish soil, we anniverserialize with this skimming of riches from his archive. Collated by bastard heir Alasdair Roberts, Whar the Pig... runs the gamut from rumbustuous to ruthless, and from acapella to accordion — a full range of the Scottish scale!
