Breabach perform ‘Murdo Took The Stoop’ live in the studio, led by fiddle-player Megan Henderson on vocals. Megan introduces the clip and talks about the art of Mouth Music singing (or Puirt à beul in Gaelic). Features the following concepts - voice, flute, bagpipes, drone, repetition, unison, folk group, fiddle.
This clip could be used when studying the music of Scotland, to deepen knowledge and understanding of the differences between the types of song. Learners could choose a track - mouth music or one of the other types of song, e.g. Scots ballad - and do a presentation to the others in the class, describing key concepts within and why they have chosen the track.
