Robert Burns - Songs O' the Lassies: Willie sings the songs of Robert Burns with an intimate and sensitive delivery to simple guitar and piano arrangements. Produced in Kilmarnock, the home of Burns's 1st edition, this is a worthy contribution to 2009's celebration of the poet's birth.
Willie Stewart Writes, "...a selection of songs featuring lassies, some popular, some well known and loved, some original tunes from Johnson’s Scots Musical Museum, “The Bonie Lass O’ Albanie” to which I have set a popular folk song known as “The River’s Wide”, and the last being the original tune for “Auld Lang Syne”, which Burns took and so masterfully built on to create an international anthem. Is this a song about a lassie? “We twa hae paddled in the burn, We twa hae run about the braes.” Could this be an early childhood memory of a wee boy and lassie who grew both up and apart? I leave you to decide for yourself as we sit doon aside the fire and enjoy a sang or twa."
Willie Stewart - voice; Duncan Findlay - guitar; Clark Sorley - piano.
