Now's the Day and Now's the Hour: Scotland Remembers the Alamo
by Carl Peterson
A unique combination of history and music that connects the spirit and background of the Alamo defenders to Scotland. From the beginning of Scotland’s freedom wars, with Wallace and Bruce, we see the trend carried forward to the Texas and the Alamo. With piper John MacGregor and the fiddler of the Alamo the men’s spirits were maintained with the music of Scotland that contained a history of a fighting spirit. These songs were then used as the tunes for ballads and stories written about the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. This Texas freedom fight has its roots in Scotland’s freedom wars. Also contains melody, lyrics and historical notes on all the songs from the CD.
