The People Next Door

RIMG0077.JPGThere are two not unconnected recordings today. The first is a well-known traditional Scottish song that I sang to our girls when they were small.

The second is a Shetland version of a traditional tune. Around 1970, if I remember rightly, Stefan Sobel told the story to a folk club audience of seeing, late one evening, a small faintly illuminated procession making its way through the dark woods to this tune.

The People Next Door? It’s said that you should never name the Good Neighbours.
