Carl Peterson

Scotland Remembers the Alamo

Scotland Remembers the Alamo

With piper John MacGregor and fiddler Davy Crockett the men at the Alamo were often entertained by the songs brought to the New World from Scotland and Ireland. These songs were then used as tunes for ballads and stories written about the Alamo and the Texas revolution. Carl Peterson now presents these songs, many for the first time, in an incredible double CD collection. (Nearly two hours of music!)

The first CD contains songs written about the Alamo and the Texas Revolution, and also instrumental music on fiddle and bagpipe of songs that would have been current in the early 1800s, songs that perhaps the men of the Alamo would have been familiar with. The second CD continues this theme, but also includes the original versions of the songs whose tunes were used to write the songs about the Alamo and Texas. Complete song list is below.
