The Braes O Appin is on Iain's cd Words O Fiction (2004)

Wi the darkness o winter drawing near
When autumn leaves are falling
And the swallows disappear
When the love o a night is the fire glow
Like setting suns remembered
When we were baith young and free
Tumbling doon the braes o Appin
Tae the sea

chorus
On the braes, the braes o Appin
Ah fell in love wi you
Love Ah thocht wad last a summer
Never dreamt a lifetime through
Laughing children that once was you and me
Tumbling doon the braes o Appin
Tae the sea

In Lochaber aroon by Aonach MMor
We met as strangers walking
Heading doon Loch Linnhe's shore
Shared the sunlight, the mist and early dew
Ah sang o love and beauty
Tae the girl entwined wi me
Tumbing doon the braes o Appin
tae the sea

In the shadows o Morven nestled doon
Ower Mull the sun was sinking
At the rising o the moon
In the morning awoke tae seagull cries
A smir was clouding Lismore
Ah recall as you and me
Tumbled doon the braes o Appin
Tae the sea

I don't think you can buy the cd from any of the usual outlets - possibly somewhere in Bearsden or Milngavie, I'll find out; you could try contacting Mick Macneil of Mix Studios at Auchineden (near Milngavie I think) or if you are in the West of Scotland / Glasgow area you can get in touch with Iain - - I'll ask him how you can obtain one if you live farther away!

That's brilliant. Thanks very much for that. I will try and get a copy of the CD as it is for my mum & dad who are now in New Zealand and they heard the song when they came over for a holiday and we went to the Etrick Bar folk night a few months ago and they all played this song. They want to learn it so they can play it in NZ. Any ideas where I can get a copy of the CD locally (i stay in Erskine).

Thanks again

Hi Guest,
is this still Graeme Dempster?
Tattie Bogle mentioned The Living Tradition magazine's online shop; I have no idea how to do links, but you should be able to do a search for it - or try Pete Heywood who is the editor. I haven't spoken to Iain recently, don't know if there are any available elsewhere, the online shop is probably best bet - otherwise we just have to set up a meeting in Glasgow, Erskine or wherever, then you can obtain an autographed copy directly from Iain himself!!

Thanks T.B. -let me know if you want to meet up with Iain! He nearly made it to the Ballads Club with Ray Fisher - perhaps we'll see him at the November one with Tam Spiers? G.M.

That would be good. Perhaps he can bring along some CDs for us all to get signed copies!
BTW, I've heard another couple of renditions of Annie McKelvie this week, and both are different again!

I'll suggest that to him T.B.! (cds to Lauries / Ballads Club)
- I am also going to work on him (i.e. nag, try to get his original versions of at least some of the songs onto y*u t*b* (not sure if one is allowed to mention other sites?) so that people can hear how Iain composed them - one has no control over the 'folk process', but it is good to be able to start off with the writer intended, maybe learn the story behind the song?!

Great idea GM, do bring CDS or even himself along (subject to available places!) And it would be good to have some of his stuff on Youtube (I think it's Ok to mention it, (there's certainly a thread here about Youtube clips! ) provided you're not infringing copyright, which you wouldn't be if your nagging/persuasion of the man himself is effective!
