Each deluxe packaged album serves as a music and travel guide to some of the world’s most musically exciting countries and popular holiday destinations. Whether it’s cult classics from artists who are national treasures or the cutting-edge contemporary sounds you’d hear in the cafes and bars, the ‘Experience’ albums are compiled by DJs and journalists who have travelled extensively in the featured country and have chosen the music that defines that country’s musical-makeup. The compilers also write extensive 40-page, 8,000 words+, mini-travel guides to partner the music filled with ‘insider’ tips on the festivals and venues to go to hear the best music, the best cafes and restaurants to eat and drink at and other useful facts and figures for the traveller keen to get the most out of the country. ‘Experience Scotland’ contains the cream of Scotland’s artists and features traditional folk styles such as traditional harp, bagpipe and fiddle music from leading lights Peatbog Faeries, Battlefield Band, Shooglenifty and more.
