On the subject of Arthur johnstone and The Laggan, I bumped into Arthur recently and he was in fine form.
I also had the pleasure of meeting John McDermott in The Kingshouse hotel in Glencoe last weekend and in the company of a hitherto unrealised mutual friend, we all sat and chatted the night away and managed a few wee drinks as well. One thing that John said, which really hit home, in response to a question from someone else about the music scene in Scotland was that "all over Scotland, right now, people will be singing songs and playing traditional music- at home, with friends, in the pub, that's what keeps it going..."
Just remembering that keeps me going.
