FLORA BLYTHMAN (Contralto)
Relayed from The Model Studio, Scottish National Radio Exhibition, Waverley Market, Edinburgh
In the latter part of the eighteenth and the first part of the nineteenth centuries the Gows were prominent in Scottish music. Neil, probably best remembered teday, was a notable violinist beginning his musical career at the very early age of nine. Born in Perthshire, his fame as a player of reels and strathspeys soon extended far beyond merely local bounds, and even reached London. For a long time he was frequently seen at fashionable assemblies here, and was regarded as easily the foremost player of Scots dance music. It is to the Gows that Scotland is indebted for the preservation of a number of traditional airs which might otherwise have been lost. The Cows' collection of Scottish national songs and dances is of the very highest historical value.
