Anne Neilson Origins: Fish Gutting Lassie (12) RE: Fish Gutting Lassie 10 Aug 12

This is a composed song -- by Ian Sinclair from Thurso, Scotland.

Ian was a member (fiddle) of the respected Scottish folk group Mirk, along with his wife Margie (a very much admired singer of traditional songs) and Ray Crompton on guitar and mandolin. They had a couple of good records, but the distance from the north of Scotland made it difficult to promote their music, given that all three were in full-time employment.

Other well-known songs of Ian's are "The King's Shilling" and "Tak' a Dram", both of which are becoming accepted into the Scottish 'traditional' repertoire.
