The Alan Bruford Lecture – Scotland’s Fenian Lays


The Irish are highly familiar with Celtic myths and legends, but they
know little of the evidence for these in Scotland. Scottish Gaelic
culture uniquely retains sung Fenian Lays which are connected with sites
of major archaeological significance. Sadly, the Scots are largely
unfamiliar with this material, be it from Ireland or Scotland. Alan
Bruford was exceptional in his work on the singing of Fenian Lays, and
this lecture, honouring his memory, will let you hear and see just how
significant Scotland’s part of this shared Celtic inheritance was. With John Purser.
