Walter Scott and Song: Retuning the Harp of the North

Walter Scott and Song: Retuning the Harp of the North
-

Exploring ballads, opera, and theatrical and popular songs, this online exhibition showcases the University of Aberdeen's Walter Scott collections alongside musical recordings.

As a best-selling author, Walter Scott introduced Scottish traditions to audiences across the world. His writings and song collections inspired both his readers in the 1800s, and future generations of musicians. 

Tune in to discover Aberdeen’s connection to the folklore of the Border Ballads, how Scottish legend was transformed into Italian opera, and the meanings contained in well-loved songs such as ‘Bonnie Dundee’.
