ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jack Beck is a native of Fife, Scotland. Jack and his wife, folklorist and storyteller Dr. Wendy Welch, recently moved to Big Stone Gap VA, where they run a used bookshop. Welch teaches Appalachian Studies at the university, while Beck presents a Celtic music program on the local NPR station.

Beck became interested in Scots-dialect songs and ballads during the 1960’s folk-song revival. Throughout the sixties he played alongside artists who included Barbara Dickson, Archie Fisher, The McAlmans, The Corries and The Incredible String Band. As a founding member of the acclaimed folk band Heritage, he did several recordings, TV and radio broadcasts, and European tours. Made an honorary lifetime member of the Traditional Music and Song Association of Scotland in 1990, he developed a college curriculum for Scottish traditional music tutors, and was external examiner in Scots song at the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow—a degree program led by ex-Battlefield Band fiddler Brian McNeill. Beck’s most recent venture is A Stranger in this Country, an “infotainment” intertwining Scots and American ballads. Beck and Welch continue to record and perform; their song-and-story programs are lively and rooted in tradition.

We're All Jock Tamson's Bairns is their first album together although both have other albums in their individual names.
