Sleeve Notes

On a happy day in June 1997 Jim Malcolm and I were married in Methlick, Aberdeenshire. One of our many special wedding presents—from one of the wittiest men in the Scottish folk scene, Ian McCalman, and his partner Ellen Krog—was 20 hours of recording time in his studio. We decided to use this to realise one of my ambitions—to make a CD of my favourite traditional Scots songs. Most of these are, like me, from the North-east of Scotland.
