Fonn, The Campbells of Greepe

Music and a Sense of Place in a Gaelic Family Song Tradition

  Author:   Campbell Family    
  Publisher:  Cape Breton University Press

In this book the rich musical and cultural heritage of Gaelic Scotland is revealed through the memories of one family. The story of the Campbells of Greepe has become synonymous with the way in which the cultural legacy of a community can be safeguarded, while a new generation of performers is nurtured at the same time.

With a foreword by Dr John Macinnis, Fonn tells the story of the Campbells and the island community which is their hinterland, and shares over 100 songs from the family tradition, with an accompanying CD drawn from the archives of the School of Scottish Studies, the BBC and family itself.
