    Shall bear the gree an' a' that
    For a' that an' a' that
    It's coming yet for a' that
    That man to man, the world o'er
    Shall brithers be for a' that






    Just thot I wd. include the lyrics/text for this

    A Robert Tannahill poem Glomy Winter's Noo Awa-2 different styles:

    Dougie MacLean - Gloomy Winter's Noo Awa - YouTube


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo5mWDgR5yUT

    The first by Dougie MacLean. A favorite of mine, very moving.

    The second by an American, Custer LaRue. The wooden flute, harp, and her vocal ability absolutely transport me right into the lyrical realm of the poet. What a day that was! I am there. AKA "take a trip and never leave the farm." And so I poke fun at myself and yet no apology is forthcoming....

    Iernis is a band formed in Athens of individuals who favour the Celtic tradition:

    No Scots in the band but see what you think.

    Last post perhaps? A bittersweet last song then. As far as I can tell it is about a conversation, a wee injured bird, and a young and inquisitive lass:
