GUEST,folkiedave Folklore: Dumfries & Galloway: Traditional song (44) RE: Folklore: Dumfries & Galloway: Traditional song 12 Jan 11

My wife comes from the area - in fact down at the very end - Drummore. There were some songs being written by a milk tanker driver called Henry McCracken, he did one specially for our wedding!!

I seem to remember the librarian at Stranraer is a fiddle player.

And we met someone last year at Cullerslie Singing weekend who was looking for material. Not a huge amount in the School of Scottish Studies archives apparently.

Sorry this is a bit disjointed.
