This page shows the information of all the outputs from the AHRC-funded research project Understanding Scotland Musically.
There will be updates to this page in future as more outputs are produced. Do get in touch if you have any questions.
The principal output from this project is a book which is in press and should be available from Oct/Nov 2015:
McKerrell, Simon. (in press) Focus on Scottish Traditional Music, (London & New York: Routledge).
Other formal scholarly academic outputs include so far:
McKerrell, Simon. (2014) ‘Traditional arts and the state: the Scottish case’, Cultural Trends (Scottish Cultural Policy special issue), Vol. 23, Issue 3, (2014).
I am currently working on two other articles that focus on a) the cultural sociology of the Scottish traditional music audience and b) a multimodal analysis of a single song examining the concept of social distance.
Dr Gary West and I are preparing a co-edited book for publication with 18 papers from the Understanding Scotland Musically conference held in October 2014.
There are various summaries and video interviews available on this site.
All of the outputs from the blog are available now here. And basic results of the online survey are available here.
