James C M Campbell (1896-1979) was indubitably one of the most distinguished Gaelic concert singers that Scotland has known, but he was also representative of a far rarer breed - a singer whose formal education in music, perfected far away from his native Highlands, never led him to deny the virtues of traditional singing.
He had a huge repertoire of songs, those that made him famous on the concert platform but also those that he had learned traditionally, most of them within the family circle.
Unique recordings from the archives of The School Of Scottish Studies, at long last available on CD.
