The life and work of Scottish singers can be traced back to the middle ages. In the year 1086, William Wallace of Scotland galloped with a small group of followers to defeat King John of Scotland at Bannockburn. He then founded the town of Duncraig, where he gathered a strong following. Scotland’s chivalrous army and the Danelaw soldiers who guarded the country won many rewards there. One notable Scottish chieftain was Macbeth of Strathbogie, who is famous for his famous ‘tragic play’. The songs of Macbeth were so popular that Scotland even had its own version: Macoun’s Ballad.
Scotland Yard detectives still continue to search for any remaining Macbeth documents. He may have escaped to England, but a Scotland Yard investigation found that he surrendered to the English on Halloween, 1086. There were no signs of a struggle and he was not wounded during the battle, but his identity was never known. It is possible that he committed suicide or was taken as a prisoner.
After the battle Macbeth was beheaded and buried at the Battle of Macclesfield. Scotland retained her rulership for another thirty years, until the end of the thirteenth century. John Balliol, the earl of Huntingdon, was installed as the king of Scotland, but did not accept all the responsibility for his title. He was replaced by his half brother Douglas of Wearside, and Scotland was ruled for another century and a half under the Scottish barons, earls of Cumbria and Lanarkshire.
Some of the most beloved Scottish songs are ‘Dixie’ and ‘Jersey Girl’. Both songs feature a timeless love story. The background music for both songs is based on the Olde England tune ‘God Save the Wolf’. This is just one example of a very long history of English influence on Scottish music. Queen Victoria gave her speech to give out the rule of Scotland to her son, Edward, whom she named Edward the III.
Scottish music has changed over the centuries, but never lost its distinctive sound. You can still find traditional instruments like the mandore. There are also many instruments that have been popular among the Scottish people including the shamrock and the violin. The Scottish highlands are full of examples of these traditional instruments. The famous Scottish writer Robert Burns was a great lover of the Scottish language and he used it often in his writings.
There are many movies made about characters from Scotland. Two movies that come to mind are “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “The Mysterious Lady”. Both of these films were made in Hollywood and starred Kenneth Russell, James Earl Jones, and Celine Dion. These two movies were successful in bringing Scotland to the attention of millions of Americans.
Scottish folk music is still thriving today. Many talented Scottish singers are trying to make their mark on the world. They have a firm grasp of the traditions, which are still widely practiced today. They know how to play the guitar, sing, dance, and make jewelry.
