A double CD of songs, ballads, and tunes

Elizabeth Stewart

Elizabeth Stewart, from Mintlaw, is one of Scotland’s foremost

ballad singers, who learnt her art from her family, especially

her aunt, Lucy Stewart (1901-1982). She is a member of the

Fetterangus Stewarts, a family steeped in the oral traditions

of the Travelling People. Elizabeth is a gifted player of Scottish

traditional music on the piano and, like her mother, Jean, played

in a country-dance band. This double CD features twenty-seven

of her finest songs and ballads, plus four delightful sets of tunes.
