Scotland and Brittany


This paper was presented at the University of Brest in 2016 as apart of a symposium on links between Scottish and Breton culture:

Stuart Eydmann, ‘A Celtic Connection: Scotland at the Festival Interceltique de Lorient.’ in Michel Byrne and Camille Manfredi (eds.) Bretagne- Ecosse : contacts, transferts et dissonances. (Brest, 2017).

The publication also contains important papers on the establishment of pipe bands in Brittany (Sebastien Carney), on the adoption of the Highland bagpipes in Brittany (Gilles Goyat) and on the influence of Breton musicologists on the work of Scottish musician and collector of Gaelic song Marjory Kennedy-Fraser (Per Ahlander).
