The course will introduce students to the internationally-renowned wealth of Scottish oral traditions, including Scots song, Gaelic song, ballads, folktales, music, and dance. Students will meet performers and 'tradition-bearers' as well as studying the contexts in which these art forms emerged and are carried on.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
