Scotus Origins: Threescore and Ten (55* d) RE: Origins: Threescore and Ten 04 Aug 06


That fine Fife songwriter John Watt produced a stunning song called 'The Eyemouth Disaster' (recorded by him and other notables including Cilla Fisher), which I believe deals with the same storm and similar events (Eyemouth is a fishing town just north of Berwick on the east coast). My understanding is that the storm came right down the east coast from the Shetlands to the south coast of England and that there were many similar disasters over the space of a couple of days. I'll bet there are a few other songs around!
