Gaelic Stories Told By Peter Morrison

This is a CD re-release of the 1995 Greentrax music cassette and is Volume 14 in the Scottish Tradition Series.

Peter Morrison, a crofter-fisherman from the small Hebridean island of Grimsay, which lies between North Uist and Benbecula, was recorded by D A MacDonald between 1962 and 1974 on Grimsay.

Peter Morrison, a man of many talents apparently, was a very highly regarded Gaelic storyteller and six of his favourite stories are included on this CD.

The extensive sleeve notes, previously available as an additional booklet, are now included within the CD booklet and were updated by Will Lamb. The translations to English are included in the CD booklet.

The Scottish Tradition Series consists of a selection of material previously held in the School of Scottish Studies Archives at the University of Edinburgh. The widely acclaimed collection is quite unique, and has been regarded as “the most important series of traditional recordings ever…”.
