Capercaillie

Music for the soundtrack of the United Artists film “Rob Roy” was provided by Capercaillie. The film stars Liam Neeson in the title role and Jessica Lange as Mary McGregor. Full supporting cast includes Tim Roth, John Hurt, Eric Stolz and Brian Cox.

These songs, many written at the time, retrace the steps of those who came down from the mountains 250 years ago to follow Prince Charles Edward Stewart. Despite the attempted annihilation of a culture and a people, Gaelic endures.
