Beware of the Aberdonian

by Gaugers

The North East of Scotland, and the Buchan area in particular, has long been acknowledged as probably the richest source of traditional song in the British Isles. It is rich not only in the amount of material collected in that area but in the quality of the ballad and song versions found there. Beware of the Aberdonian was recorded in 1975 by Tony Engle for release on the great ‘Topic’ label.  The album, which has always been regarded as a classic was made available on CD for the first time in 1999.  The tracks feature Peter Hall on vocals, concertina and baritone concertina, Tom Spiers on vocals and fiddle, and Arthur Watson on vocals, whistle, dulcimer and bodrhan. Possibly Scotland’s most enduring traditional folk song group, 'The Gaugers' first performed together in 1964.  One of their earliest gigs was at Aberdeen folk club where they were bluntly introduced as follows, ‘They’re nae a’body’s cup o’ tea – but ye might like them – The Gaugers’!! Well, they were liked and later went on to perform at traditional music festivals and concerts throughout the world.
