The Music and The Land is published by Birlinn Ltd. as a beautiful two-volume set with a slipcase. The book is a journey of words, photography and melody through the lands that have inspired Freeland Barbour's compositions, and reflects his legacy of musical influences and experiences with Silly Wizard, The Wallochmor Ceilidh Band, The Ghillies, and The Occasionals. With chapter introductions by such well-known names as Robbie Shepherd, Magnus Linklater, Martin Carthy, Phil Cunningham, Rab Noakes, Fergie Macdonald and Dougie Maclean, to name just a few, and with the awe-inspiring photography of Cailean Maclean, it is a wonderful tribute to Scotland's landscape and traditions. FREE CD ('The Sampler') with each set. For orders outwith The U.K., or for more than 1 set within The U.K., please contact www.bonskeidmusic.com.
"What a book! It is a piece of social history, a geography lesson, a heartfelt, often humorous celebration of the tradition to which Freeland has himself contributed so much, and a hymn of love to the land and the sea. It will, undoubtedly, become a collector's item" - James Robertson
