Fonn, the Campbells of Greepe

Music and a Sense of Place in a Gaelic Family Song Tradition

Now available in Canada, Fonn is published by Acair Books (Stornoway, Isle of Lewis), and sold in Canada by Cape Breton University Press.

In this book the rich and cultural heritage of Gaelic Scotland is revealed through the memories of one family – The Campbells of Greepe. One of the best known names in Gaelic Music, the story of The Campbells of Greepe is synonymous with the way in which the cultural legacy of a community can be safeguarded, while a new generation of performers is nurtured at the same time.

This book combines the memories of The Campbells of Greepe with traditional Gaelic songs and music – on paper and on a CD.
