This will loop until manaully stopped.
A great selection of songs ranging from Jim's own compositions, Vinney Den and The Spark among the Heather to the lovely traditional ballads, Busk Busk Bonnie Lassie and The Shearin's No For You and Jim's setting of the Helen Cruichshank poem Shy Geordie as a song Up the Noran Water. Old ceilidh favourites include Lassie wi the Yellow Coatie and Flower of Northumberland and the 'golden oldie' Rowan Tree. The title song The Wild Geese, written as a poem by the Angus poet violet Jacob and set to music by Jim has now become a classic.
Artistes: Jim Reid: vocals, guitar & mouthorgan; Bob Dewars: accordion; Chae Geddes: fiddle and Sandy Beattie: double bass.
