Thanks for this wonderful song, Matt. I've not come across this band so far, but the half-dozen of my favourite songs I've just listened to shows quite clearly: their interpretations of the classic Scottish folk songs count among the best I know. Wonderful singing and playing. BTW, I love the way they pigeonhole themselves: Folk'n'Roll. What a discovery!

Alas, they've disbanded ... There's a kind of continuation, but without the vocals of Iain Scott, it's hard to imagine them still being able to get quite the same kind of sound. Still, I agree - some of their earlier albums count among my favourite music ever: strong, authentic, moving. Oh, and fun.

Sorry, no photo from me today. I have been at the hospital since before 9am today to have the pressure in both of my eyes tested, every hour on the hour, until 4pm. Now that I am home, I am bushed, so after dinner it will be an early night! I'll try to find something tomorrow though.
Take care Charles! Feel better soon.

I have to echo Walter's comment, Matt - and my thanks as well for this wonderful song from a Scots band I was not familiar with. Great rendition. And I'm sorry they (the band, I mean) are no more.

On the theory that one great Scottish folk tune deserves another, here is one of my favourites from the Battlefield Band, a moving ballad about the disappearance of the working horses which once were common on many small farms; this song commemorates the last day of horses working out in the fields, and their 'last trip home', walking back to their stables.

I've been to quite some of their concerts. One of the big names in Scottish Folk, with an excellent piper.
