QUESTION: On LOTSS, Kevin McKidd sings and plays guitar on the ballad "Bonnie Henry Gordon" - in what North-East Scottish dialect is the song partially sung?
Thanks to everyone who took part in the contest and to Paul for donating his CD as a prize! You helped us kick off the New Year in great style :)
LOTSS, Paul Anderson's self-penned album, features over 70 minutes of music. (Preview the album.) Kevin McKidd appears as a special guest on the ballad "Bonnie Henry Gordon" which tells the story of the bloody feud between the Gordon’s of Knock and the Forbes of Strathgirnoc in the 1570s. Paul and Kevin met during the recording of "The Speyside Sessions". Paul played lead fiddle on that album and several other Sessioners appear on the LOTSS album as well (Dave Martin, Ali Napier, and Paul's wife Shona Donaldson.) This is great set of traditional tunes you will want in your music collection!
