  Music of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scottish traditional music, although influencing and being influenced by both Irish traditional music and English traditional music, is very much a creature unto itself, and, despite the popularity of various international pop music forms, remains a vital and living tradition.
The history of the guitar in traditional music is recent; equally so is that of the cittern and bouzouki, which in the forms used in Scottish and Irish music only date to the late 1960s.
Music had long been primarily a solo affair, until The Clutha, a Glasgow-based group, began solidifying the idea of a Celtic band, which eventually consisted of fiddle or pipes leading the melody, and bouzouki and guitar along with the vocals.

 Scottish country dance - music CD index
The Scottish Country Dance Index lists, in alphabetical order, all the dances for which the music is available on CD, and the album on which it is to be found.
Dancers can now not only trace their favourite dance to a particular album, but also, where more than one artiste has recorded it, select their CD according to either the style or the speed of the music they desire.
It is therefore only an approximate guide to the speed, but should be more than adequate for selecting the appropriate track to dance to.
