GUEST,Rossey DTStudy: Bonny Dundee (27) RE: DTStudy: Bonny Dundee 12 Jul 15


It's funny what started off as a music/poetry and theatre work by Scott - ended up being a 'Rabble Rouser' of the Scottish folk repertoire when played with an adapted tune, by mostly guitar backed folk groups. Songs for drunken or high spirited audiences everywhere!

Bonnie Dundee, Flower of Scotland, Killiecrankie, Twa' Recruiting Sergeants, Gallant Forty Twa' - in a rock form, Loch Lomond... Driving rhythm and choruses that audiences latch on to.

Ironically the Auld Scots used and the historical lyrics of Bonnie Dundee are so archaic, that 99.99 percent of ordinary people its sung to won't have a clue what any of it means - but we all love the sing a long chorus.
