Music Monday – "So I've been telling old stories, singing songs/That make me think about where I came from"

2009 is apparently the 250th birthday of Robbie Burns, a fact I only discovered while searching for clips from one of my favourite Saskatchewan singer-songwriters, Eileen Laverty. 

I'm way past Robbie Burns Day but I'll still post it here…such a beautiful song…three days in a row with content to bring a tear to your eye!

    Augh – there's something in my eye! Damn you Jason Hammond, for making this wee lassie cry.
    The running joke in my mother's family (border-raiding Armstrongs) was that they were kicked out of Scotland for sheep-stealing in the 1700's and fled to Barbados to find their fortunes. I used to roll my eyes when she got all teary upon hearing bagpipes but now I find myself doing the same. Chris and I were piped down the aisle after our wedding to the strains of Scotland the Brave – not a dry eye in the tent!

    It's a beautiful song isn't it? My grandmother was born in Scotland so it pulls at my heartstrings just that extra little bit.
