Main: Scottish Sunday

Outlander

One of the things that I (Gabrielle) love so much about Radio Riel’s eclec­tic main stream is that we are able to fea­ture music for hol­i­days, impor­tant dates in his­to­ry and pop cul­ture events. Today’s pro­gram falls into that last cat­e­go­ry.

In hon­or of the pre­mière of the new tele­vi­sion series “Out­lander”, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s main stream is tra­di­tion­al and folk music from Scot­land.

With no offi­cial sound­track out yet for “Out­lander”, Radio Riel is hap­py to pro­vide an unof­fi­cial one in today’s pro­gram. The major­i­ty of the “Out­lander” sto­ry is set in Scot­land in 1743, just two years pri­or to the last Jaco­bite rebel­lion. Today’s pro­gram fea­tures many songs that were writ­ten at that time, or just after, in order to pro­vide sup­port for the Jaco­bite cause.

Com­pos­er Bear McCreary has writ­ten the score for the show and he has kind­ly tak­en the time to intro­duce him­self and his work to Out­lander fans. Hope­ful­ly there will be an offi­cial sound­track at some point, but until then please enjoy today’s Scot­tish music on Radio Riel!
