GUEST,Rossey who were the' fortune bay sons'? (7) who were the' fortune bay sons'? 03 Sep 17

A while ago I found that some Newfoundland folk group called 'Fortune Bay Sons' recorded lyrics written by Stewart Ross of Inverness Scotland to a Scottish tune called 'My mother. His lyrics came out in 1975.   Now on the 'You Tube' video it was weirdly called 'Mike's Mom' (sic). I later had the video creator change the title to its correct one of 'My mother'.   There is no obvious reason for the weird title, and it bears no relationship to the song. My father never received a penny for this particular recording, and knew nothing of its existence - though they seemed to have name checked him, I am left curious to know who these guys were? There dates of existence and are any of them still in the land of the living? Also what year they recorded my father's lyrics? If anybody can help set my curiosity to rest I'd be very grateful.
