Alison Kinnaird - The Lothian Collection (book): This is a collection of 25 tunes arranged for the Scottish harp by Alison Kinnaird. The tunes come from the big houses and great families of the Lothians, (East, West and Midlothian) ancient regions of the Scottish Lowlands centered round Edinburgh. Most of the music dates from the 18th and early 19th centuries, though one piece is from an early 17th century Manuscript and one is a new composition by Alison herself. All have been inspired and dedicated to the houses and their families, by the composers. Ranging from romantic slow airs to sparkling jigs and reels or elegant minuets and pastorales, they evoke the people and places of times past, but are yet still part of the living tradition of Scottish music. Alison Kinnaird is recognised as the foremost exponent of traditional Scottish harp music and is in demand worldwide as performer and teacher of the harp.
