SCOTLAND THE BRAVE.

Scotland the Brave is a musical celebration of Scottish history and the indomitable Scottish spirit. With just one hammered dulcimer - or with the lush overlay of two or three hammered dulcimers - virtuoso performer Mitzie Collins captures the essence of Scottish melody in her imaginative interpretations. From the first stirring notes of "Scotland the Brave" to the final hushed arpeggio of "Auld Lang Syne", the memorable tunes of beloved songs, the energetic marches and the lively dance melodies unfold a calvacade of Scottish experience. The sound is exceptional on this completely digital album.
