Music from the Simon Fraser Collection
4 in Stock
This cd is in tribute to Captain Simon Fraser's famous 1816 Collection. The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland & the Isles was reproduced in Cape Breton. A three hour recording was issued and hence due to interest in the music this CD has been recompiled from those 1982 sessions.
