How could I forget? You've got to listen to two of Scotland's finest:
Alison McMorland and Geordie McIntyre. I've got 4 of their CDs but 2 to start with (just can't choose one!) would be:

'Cloudberry Day' Alison's solo recording (Tradition Bearers LTCD 1003, 2000)

and

'Ballad Tree' with Alison, Geordie and Alison's daughter Kirsty Potts (Tradition Bearers LTCD 1051, 2003)

I'll leave you to discover the others. Excuse me while I go and play all 4 - one after the other!
