Sleeve Notes

Scotland's Corries, Roy Williamson and bearded Ronnie Browne have been singing together for more than twenty years now and are featured on this album, together with an audience, performing and singing some of their extensive repertoire of Scottish songs. The tracks here cover all aspects of Scottish life, war and peace, humorous and social, the old and the new. We the producers hope that you will enjoy the album and perhaps glean a little of the magic of what it's like to be present at a Corries' concert.
