The North Road

A week ago, Elrik Mer­lin drove up the Great North Road from Cam­bridgeshire to the High­lands of Scot­land to start a new life north of the bor­der (and who knows, it might be a bor­der again soon!).

He cel­e­brates his move to Scot­land with a pro­gramme fea­tur­ing pri­mar­i­ly tra­di­tion­al Scot­tish music, the first from his new stu­dio on the north-east coast.

The pro­gramme includes plen­ty of music for tra­di­tion­al Scot­tish dance bands with the stan­dard line­up of accor­dions, fid­dle, drums and often piano, along­side folk music and, of course, the pipes.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er.

The paint­ing is by Sid­ney Richard Per­cy and depicts Kilchurn Cas­tle, Loch Awe, once the seat of the Camp­bells.
