Over the years there have been some great Scottish folk artists and some great songs written about our struggle as a Nation and about our heroes who fought and died for our freedom.
There have been mainstream artists such as The Corries and Gaberlunzie who sing about the English oppression of Scotland and the struggle which we still face today but over the past couple of years I have come across a singer/songwriter called Alistair Hulett. Alistair was born in Glasgow but he spent many years in Australia. He was the Lead singer of an Australian celtic folk/punk band called Roaring Jack which he helped form in 1985, they went on to support bands like The Pogues and Billy Bragg. They split up in 1992 and Alistair went on to a very successful solo career back here in Scotland. Alistair's songs stand apart though, as he sings of the modern day problems.. one of which being the sectarianism which hangs over our Nation. This Sectarianism could easily be erradicated through proper education but it is has been used by "Britain" to Divide and Conquer over Scotland and Ireland for the past century.
Here's an old Roaring Jack song called "The old divide and rule"
There are many of his songs on youtube and you can buy his cd's from the website at http://www.alistairhulett.com/.
