Scottish Traditional Music Survey

My colleague at Newcastle University, Simon McKerrell, is currently conducting research for a very important project examining musical meaning in a Scottish context. He’s hosting an exciting conference in October at which I’m giving a paper, but more of that anon. In the meantime, he’s looking for people to take a survey. See below from Simon. RG

Scottish Traditional Music Survey

You are invited to fill out a new survey on Scottish traditional music and to contribute to a greater understanding of how it is experienced in communities in Scotland and abroad. The survey is being conducted by Dr Simon McKerrell at Newcastle University for the Arts and Humanities Research Council UK project, Understanding Scotland Musically. Please find the survey at the following link:

The results of this survey will be used to inform research about Scottish traditional music in communities, policy and practice. If you have any questions, please contact Simon McKerrell,
