Effsee,

He is, my wife also learned it from The Burrian Tape mentioned above. My brother-in-law worked on Fair Isle for a summer learning dry stone walling and hedging ...... Burrian are from Fair Isle and he bought us the tape while he was there.

Ann Sinclair is a member of Burrian and with the song being credited to "Sinclair" we assumed that she had written it and wrote to her for permission to record it. She pointed us in the direction of Ian who despite sharing the Sinclair name is not a relation of hers.

Ian has no on-line presence and we were only able to get a message to him via a 3rd party who knows him.

I agree he is a very under rated song writer. He definitely wrote this song.
