Borderers is a collection of recently recorded ballads, songs and tunes from the Scottish/English Borders.

Ancient ballads, such as Johnny Armstrong, The Brothers and The Dowie Dens o' Yarrow rub shoulders with more modern songs, such as The Canny Shepherd, Laddie o' the Hills, Boys o Boys, Jimmy Raeburn, Lassie wi the Yellow Coatie and The Border Hunt Ball.

There are also fiddle, accordeon and whistle tunes, children's songs, and, for good measure, a monologue - MacAllister's Dance Before the King.

"It’s a record, in the true sense of the word, of a community and its songs and music... A strong ongoing oral tradition." (Rod Stradling, Musical Traditions)
