Very brief introduction

Capercaillie ("Kap-ir-Kay-Lee", named after a large Grouse) are without a doubt one of the most popular of Scottish traditional groups. Karen Matheson's singing has been widely acclaimed, both for traditional songs and some of their more pop-influenced recent work. Many comparisons have been made between Capercaillie and Clannad both for their overall style and their ventures from traditional to more modern sounds. The band has been around since the early eighties, and have recorded with Green Linnet and Survival Records.
