Description

Assorted songs from recent radio broadcasts featuring the late Scottish singer Jean Redpath (28 April 1937 – 21 August 2014). And here is a link to my Jean Redpath playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE21A80FB2B2B7418&feature=plcp Garrison Keillor: "Of Jean Redpath an admirer wrote 'Jean was blessed with a divine voice. She was additionally blessed with a fabulous smile and a quick wit which, along with her Scottish accent, endear her to people immediately. What is most admirable about her, however, is her backbone. A person doesn't make a life singing Scottish traditional music on the basis of charm. She has a fierce devotion to the music, as a Scot and as an artist. Everything she most deeply feels and believes in — about death and love and country and womanhood — comes out in these songs. The songs aren't pictures. They're rocks. They are the mountain itself'."
