A unique double CD with a diverse mix of 39 tracks selected from the Greentrax back-catalogue.

Includes licensed tracks along with others specially recorded for this album and matching many of the tapestry panels.

This double album is a companion to the latest tapestry The Scottish Diaspora designed by the quite remarkable artist Andrew Crummy and stitched by numerous volunteers.

A compilation album engineered by Ian Green with a stellar cast of superb performers.

Previously, Greentrax released ‘The Battle of Prestonpans 1745’ album (CDTRAX356) as a companion to the Prestonpans Tapestry which is currently on exhibition alongside the Bayeux Tapestry in France; and 'The Music and Song of The Great Tapestry of Scotland' (CDTRAX372D) in association with The Great Tapestry of Scotland Trust.

Scotland's diaspora across the world was predominantly created by warriors, traders, missionaries, medical experts and farmers. And of course there were also large groups that were driven off the Highlands by landlords or by the rigours of unemployment to seek jobs and new homes. Their descendents today number 30 million and more, not counting England where the impact has been enormous.
