Norman Stewart: The North Highland Tradition

Norman Stewart: The North Highland Tradition (Tigh na Teud, n.d.)

Norman Stewart is from Easter Ross, and a forester by profession. He was surrounded by Gaelic music and song as a child, and when he was in Edinburgh he frequented Sandy Bell's Bar in the company of Hamish Henderson and other highly influential people. Norman met and later married Janice Clark (later of the group Highland Tradition) at a North-East ceilidh and the partnership produced one record, called Iolair. I don't know of any of his recordings being released on CD. This recording is from a cassette, but there is no date given at all.
