So I would be very surprised if you were to know I was Scottish, but hi, here I am, a wee Scottish gal! And as far as music goes England get most of the credit for producing the music talent of Britain but alas! We produce a few wee gems ourselves!

So for a fun little article I thought I would dedicate one to the great musicians of Scotland - some bigger than others but all that deserve to be heard by the world! Enjoy!
(ps if you know of/ can see any I have missed from my playlist please send me a wee postcard!)
