Scots song is integral to understanding Scottish culture. Scots has been the language of choice of some of Scotland's most famous singers like Jean Redpath and Eddi Reader and songwriters like Matt McGinn and Robert Burns.
Learning about and listening to Scots song gives a greater understanding of the language and can inspire young writers and musicians to create their own new songs in Scots.
