Angleterre  -  rock celtique  -  **


Big country  est un groupe de rock écossais aux influences celtiques qui a connu le succès avec l'album " The crossing " sorti en 1983 et leur titre
" In a big country ". Les cornemuses sont ici remplacées par les guitares,
ce qui donnent à tous leurs titres un caractère particulier. Leur deuxième album "Steeltown" entrera directement 1er dans les charts anglais.
Six autres albums suivront jusqu'en 1999 et une tournée d'adieu aura lieu
en 2000. Le suicide en décembre 2001 de  
Stuart Adamson , leader du
groupe, semblait mettre une fin définitive à l'histoire de Big Country.
Mais, en 2007, une série de concerts dans une formation à 3, suivie d'un
album live ("Twenty-Five Live") relance l'histoire du groupe. Suite à des
problèmes de droits liés au nom "Big Country", un album studio (EP)
est sorti en 2008, mais sous le nom de "BBW".
