Masonic song in Scotland: Folk tunes and community

Katherine Campbell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Masonic song tradition of Scotland gives an opportunity to explore the vital role of oral tradition, particularly as carried by communal performance. The issues of folk tunes and community are explored in turn, by looking at the songs of Freemasonry against the backdrop of folksong culture and then at the songs as central to the Masonic community and more broadly to the community at large.
