FTX 261 - AMONG YON WHINNY KNOWES

SONGS FROM NORTH-EAST SCOTLAND

 

When we started recording Dialect & Folk Music "in the field" 1952, it was at a time when a number of enthusiast academics were beginning to take an interest in recording the speech and song of the Scottish "Lowlands". While Peter Kennedy was working in Northern Ireland, Irishman, Seamus Ennis, went to North-East Scotland, an area where both would later team up with Hamish Henderson. One of Seamus's first contacts in Aberdeen was Arthur Argo, grandson of the important Lowland Scots collector, Gavin Greig, and it was Arthur who introduced Seamus to most of the performers featured on this Aberdeenshire collection.
