A friend of ours is sure he has heard us sing a song called Factor Gilmartin (factor presumably in the sense of merchant/agent). I can't recall any songs in our repertoire with either of those words and google search brings up no folk songs with the name Gilmartin in, nor does a Bodleian broadsheet search. Has anyone any idea what song he is thinking of as I have drawn a blank? Thank you.

The song is called 'Gilmartin' and, according to the sleevenotes on David Ferrard's 2009 album 'Across The Troubled Wave', "it was written by Dunbar resident Kenny Brill in 1985 ... The song is about the 1814 clearances of Strathnaver, Sutherland."

Thank you *so* much for this - it was proving elusive. Judging from the live version on YouTube, it's certainly the style of song we would perform in our duo - so I can understand why are our friend assumes it's in our repertoire. I think we will have to learn it! Thank you again.
