Sandy Lyr Req: Kate Dalrymple (11) RE: Kate Dalrymple 01 Dec 98


Thanks guys,

Murray, your words best fit the version I heard sung by The Riverside Ceilidh Band (they grew up around the revival of Ceilidh's in Glasgow during the nineties and include some excellent musicians - e,g, Dougie Pincock ex Battlefield Band).

I think the Corries version has been anglicised (Englished) for a wider audience. The Corries were more of a pop-folk duo who played mostly for old ladies. I don't want to be disparaging but there is a weath of good traditional music coming from bands such as The Tannahill Weavers, Ceolbeg, (early) Battlefield Band e.t.c.

I appreciate your efforts.

Cheers

Sandy

PS I didn't get the Highland Laddie connection.
