Scottish contemporary music - 2,000 years in the making...
Temple Records was established in 1978 to create an outlet for the superb Scottish (and Irish) music which was being ignored by the mainstream labels: authentic Gaelic song, singer songwriters, harp, bagpipe and fiddle music.
Over thirty five years later the label has released many groundbreaking and seminal recordings and our focus on great music hasn't changed. Our catalogue has slowly grown while maintaining quality over quantity, featuring world-class artists like: Alison Kinnaird, Battlefield Band, Ann Heymann, Marie Ni Chathasaigh, Bill Taylor, Dr Angus MacDonald, John D Burgess, Shotts & Dykehead, Christine Primrose, Arthur Cormack, Flora MacNeil, Brian McNeill, John McCusker, Alan Reid, Jim Hunter and Peter Nardini, to name but a few.
Take a while to browse the depth of our catalogue in our online shop, and find some authentic and timeless music.

|The new Battlefield Band album 'Room Enough For All' is now available.
This superb new release, from one of the great institutions of the Scottish music scene, captures Battlefield Band at the top of their game. The group's ever-fiery instrumental dynamic, with bagpipes and fiddles to the fore, exhibits the intuitive interplay and understanding between world class traditional musicians, while their songs of social history, plaintive ballads and songs from the Scots Gaelic tradition are as powerful, relevant and moving as ever.
