Fiddle music from highland Perthshire
by Pete Clark, Edited by Jane Marx
[Published by Inver Music]
Extract from review in "Fiddler" magazine:
This is so much more than a music book – it’s a great read on many levels. It’s an entertaining history of the people and the area via music, text, paintings, and photographs. After reading it, you’ll feel as if you were treated to a whirlwind trip to highland Perthshire!
