I don't know everyone is ganging up on me. But there's a Runrig song called When The Beauty available online and youtube. The guitar sections sounds like it's taken from a folk or a traditional piece because I may have heard it somewhere.

It is a wholly original piece written by MALCOLM MAC DONALD, RORY
MAC DONALD and BRIAN HURREY Pub. by CHRYSALIS-MUSIC-LTD. The guitar part is just generic, Runrig's general sound of over 30 years. It's not based on anything traditional other than their musical heritage. If it sounds familiar, you hear one Runrig song and they mostly all have the same guitar style.

You be wrong about not based on anything traditional. They have incorprated traditional sounds before. Even includes a verse of Teann A Nall/traditional pieces in live sets

They have but this is just a bland generic Celtic sound created from their heads and experiences rather than a flog. All hooks and melodies have comparisons. It is still a wholly original work. All their stuff sounds pretty much sounds the same, apart from their classic hits and the trad.Gaelic melodies they used to cover, Not their best work though - the 80's - 90's stuff is classic!

You need to listen to all the albums, they don't sound the same.

The instrumental at about 1.45 and again at 3.25 is surely/certainly quoting from MacCrimmon's Lament: nothing wrong in that, that maybe why it sounds familiar.
Listen to this, (prepare to weep!) especially the bit from 1.10: MacCrimmon's Lament

P.S. Jeannie Robertson's singing is far from "bland generic Celtic sound" - this lament is one of the most iconic songs ever IMHO, covered by numerous other (mainly female) singers, and the late Martyn Bennett on Lowland pipes. Hairs on the back of the neck stuff! (As are many of Runrig's songs.)

Not at all, and I would be pretty certain that Calum and Rory (and Malcolm Jones, the guitarist) would be very au fait with MacCrimmon's Lament, so I don't think it got there by a chance combination of notes!
