Big Country

Big Country is a rock band from Dunfermline, Scotland, popular in the early to mid-1980s but still releasing material for a cult following. The band was notable for music heavily accented with traditional Scottish folk and martial music styles, as well as for playing and engineering their guitar sound to resemble the bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments.
