Cover: More Memories of Scottish Weekend CD, 2002

In 1998 Scottish Weekend, Inc., produced the CD Memories of Scottish Weekend as a souvenir of its annual weekend of Scottish country dancing in Maryland. This recording of a ball enjoyed by 150 dancers provided lift and excitement seldom heard on studio recordings. Due to its popularity, this sequel, More Memories of Scottish Weekend, has been produced from a recording of the ball in 2002.

The Scottish Weekend Committee gives special thanks to the musicians, composers, and sound engineers who created this second variety-filled and highly danceable CD.
