Not Scottish, but one of my favorite performances of a song from Ireland....simply beautiful:

YouTube - The Dubliners - In The Rare Old Times

Here is an old time Scotch-Irish folk song in the American bluegrass tradition:

YouTube - Down In The Willow Garden

And here is a modern Scotch-Irish American ballad from the mountains of Appalachia:

YouTube - Steve Earle - Copperhead Road
