Vic Smith Origins: Rigs o' Rye / Two Rigs of Rye (27) RE: Rigs o' Rye 01 Sep 20


I recorded Betsy Whyte - great singer.
I remember the first TMSA fest when it moved to Auchtermuchty. I entered the story-telling competition - Hamish was the judge. When I went into the hall, I saw Betsy and the seat next to her was free so I went and sat next to her though I had never talked to her before. When I was called up to tell my story, Betsy said, "So you're Vic Smith; I've always wondered what you look like."
At the end of the competition - after Betsy had been named winner - I went up to congratulate her and she told me she liked the way I told my story. "It was obvious that you learned it from Alex Stewart from the way you told it." I took that as a huge compliment.
