Thread Name: Isla St Clair
Subject: RE: Isla St Clair
Isla St. Clair used to live in my village - it was lovely to walk past her house sometimes and hear her singing in her garden to her baby. Towards the end of the 80s there was a musical event for primary school children staged at Fringford School. I was asked to play my accordion for the children to learn some country-dancing, and Isla entertained with some of her songs (I'll never forget her "Herring's Head" song!) Chris Leslie was also there and said I played "very well" - high praise indeed!!!!!
