"The Voice of the Bard" presents biographical portraits of fourteen poets and singers. All are Scottish Highlanders-most are unknown outside their local communities-and all are twentieth-century exponents of rich literary traditions whose origins can be traced to the pre-Christian era. This is a book of great importance and is illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs and a wide variety of song-poems. It reveals a hidden layer in the history of the Scottish Gaidhealtachd and paints a mini-history of Highland life.About the Author:
