Man and woman talking in front of Highland black houseThe conference was themed around 'Songs of People on the Move', a productive idea that led to some fascinating explorations of the world of singers and their songs. Selected refereed papers have been published as Songs of People on the Move edited by Thomas A. McKean. The conference was held at The Balmacara Hotel, Balmacara, Lochalsh, Scotland. We featured four days of papers and an excursion through north Skye, as well as singing sessions and concerts.
