Good on yer Noreen.

I don't think this is their best album though I have almost everything they have ever made including Anglicana bought in Brussels when we stayed with Richard.

It seems a shame that (not them) there is such a "marmite" type polorisation with SoH. I do like A I G and recognise the sentiment behind the words. Poppy? I suppose so but SoH are like that. It's not finger in yer ear folk but it is folk style and folk music must carry through the years and social changes reflecting change. Most things evolve and folk music does and will do. Just look and listen to the way young musicians carry it off.

When asked why they have never played in Scotland, Steve said. "We've never been asked". so there is chance for them to get over the Border yet.
