Travellers’ Tales – Volume 1. Songs, stories and ballads from Scottish Travellers.

Archive recordings of influential traditional storytellers, recorded by Mike Yates.

Duncan Williamson was born in 1928, in a tent on the shores of Loch Fyne.

Stanley Robertson learnt many of his songs and stories from his aunt, Jeannie Robertson, who made several record albums in the 1960’s. In turn, Duncan and Stanley have passed on many of the songs and tales that they know to their children, and these CDs also include recordings made by Duncan’s son, William, and Stanley’s daughter, Gabrielle.
