Big Country

Big Country is an internationally-renowned Scottish rock band formed in Dunfermline, Fife in 1981.

The height of the band's popularity was in the 1980s, although it retained a cult following for many years after, including the release of several further titles. The band's music was most recognisable for the sounds it infused with Scottish folk and martial music styles, as well as for playing and engineering their guitar driven sound to evoke the inspirational spirit of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments.

Famous quotes containing the words country and/or big:

    In the great cities, winter glitters with art and feasting. But poetry, the country cousin, sees only the dearth of the fields.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is not only a question of who is responsible for very young children. There is no longer anyone home to care for adolescents and the elderly. There is no one around to take in the car for repair or to let the plumber in. Working families are faced with daily dilemmas: Who will take care of a sick child? Who will go to the big soccer game? Who will attend the teacher conference?
    Fran Sussner Rodgers (20th century)
