Song Of The Day – #1.


This is an absolute “choon” – I feel it can’t really be called this as it’s hugely folky and, unless it’s folk rock, it can’t really fall under the ‘choon’ category, but it’s still epic.

Using lyrics taken from a Robert Burns poem of 1791, this Scottish folk song tells of the signing of the Act Of Union with England in 1707, and how the government at the time went against popular opinion. It compares their abandonment of Scotland to other historical figures (and heroes of the land) such as William Wallace and Robert The Bruce, who dedicated their lives to their independence. Relevant today, this is folk at its best. Listen!
