Subject: RE: BS: HOW do you write your songs?
Cool, Dunc. I love Robin's songs about historical figures, like "Summer of '46" and "Deacon Brodie". He also plays classical guitar, like me, and he uses that classical influence in his songs...even his new arrangement of "The Unquiet Grave" has those beautiful classical guitar tremelo rolls.

And coincidentally, I do live the John Wright Band. Some of the first music I listened to when I got into this British Isles folk thing back 4 years ago. A song they do, called "What's The Use of Wings" is one of my favorite songs ever.
