What is “Songs From My Tradition”?
It is both a departure and a return; a departure from the song-writing for which Bob has become so well known, and a return to his musical roots.
“Songs From My Tradition” is an album of pure, authentic, unaccompanied voice. It’s lifeblood is a rich vein of folk tradition which, flows from his friends and family ties in the North-East of Scotland.
Dedicated to the memory of Jeannie Robertson, Lizzie Higgins, Stanley Robertson, Lucy Stewart, and to the Stewarts of Blair; Alec, Belle and Kathy.
“Songs From My Tradition” is for them, and for you as well now.
