Capercaillie's Roses and Tears
Published May 9, 2008

Capercaillie, Scotland’s finest celtic act, return with their new studio album Roses and Tears, available now.

Roses and tears is celtic band Capercaillie’s  newest album. The Scottish group is credited with being at the forefront of the renaissance in folk/roots music over the last 20 years.


The album features many newly discovered traditional songs sourced from the Gaelic song archive at the School of Scottish Studies,along with self-penned material and a beautiful rendition of John Martyn’s anti-war song “Don’t You Go”.


This album re-affirms Capercaillie’s unfailing enthusiasm for the music they inherited whilst growing up on the Atlantic fringes of Scotland and Ireland. Their innovative approach to traditional sources and influences and the excitement they create through live performance explains the widespread esteem in which they are held in the current explosive folk scene.
