Pre-Burns Scots Song (Session 4)

Published on Nov 15, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Right. Tomorrow I'm doing session 5, after which I'm leaving this project for a while. I'm going slightly crazy with all this Scottish music. I assume my subscriber are also :)

This vid plus tomorrow's vid = 50 tracks recorded this week. I'm hearing Scots Song in my sleep. Someone call the doctor.

That being said, there are some good sounds from the Vermona in this set. And some good melodies. There are a couple of tracks akin to the bagpipes, then more modern sounds i.e. the second half of track 5 for a fat analog bass. Nice to show the synth in an entirely different context from standard synth use. And to demonstrate the tonal/timbral range.

...One more set, then a lie down for a while, then something completely different :)

PS some of the melodies in this section are relatively rare - even by Scots Song standards.

Track listing/Timestamps:
0:00 = Lady Keith's Lament
1:02 = Donald Couper
1:56 = I Ha'e Laid Three Herring in Saut
3:05 = Over the Water to Charlie
3:51 = Tak Your Auld Cloak About Ye
5:20 = Haud Awa', Bide Awa'
6:17 = The Wooing of Jenny & Jock
6:41 = The Souters o' Selkirk
7:33 = Tibbie Fowler
8:11 = Ever Alake my Auld Guidman

All best
