Movin' On

Stravaig is a quartet of fine soloists who have combined their talents to give voice to traditional (and the occasional not so traditional) songs. The members are Susan Kelly, Phyllis Martin, Jean McMonies and Moire Greenwood (Jean and Moire are sisters). They are collectors of traditional music, particularly from the area of south-western Scotland where they live. Stravaig is a Scottish word which means "to sally forth, go up and down, to ramble aimlessly." You will frequently see an artist beginning a tour referred to as embarking upon a stravaig. So share a musical stravaig with Scotland's top a cappella group as they ramble through traditional songs and music hall parodies to finally arrive at a Zulu traditional song which they found on the Miriam Makeba album, Sangoma.
