Karine Polwart

A youtube clip. She's singing about summer up in Shetland, and she mentions a heron, which as a would be poet is all right by me.

Hard to think of summer today as the light fails at 15.25 and I freeze as the windows go in, and the cold blasts through the house.

I don't envy anyone doing building work this time of year - nuts! Still, worth it in the long run, eh?

Hate all the dust tho'

That is such pretty singing - even tho' it's not gaelic, it still reminds me of the 'Sound of Mull', an LP (signed!) we have from our time of working in Tobermory in 1977.

Lallans - *claps hands*, I just read a Haiku Scotland issue a few weeks ago that was entirely Lallans (with translations into English). I thought they were really beautiful!
