Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects
the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life
in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.
Cha tuig an t–og aimbeart, ’s cha tuig amadan aimhleas.
Youth foresees not poverty, nor the fool his mischief.
Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is
sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much
of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved
that way for at least 200 years!
Frae saving comes having.

Scottish to the bones, Albannach is a tribal pipe and drum band from Scotland that is all about translating their home country’s ancient and unique culture and history through the music they play. Their Sub-Zero session contains some of the best Albannach tracks like "Mons Graupius March", "Bare Arsed Bandits", "1320", "Drinkin Cataloochee Koolaid", "Hail to the Heros" and everyones favorite "Heart in the Holylands." This CD has a special dedication to Dave R. Ross (1958-2010) who was an amazing man from Scotland who dedicated his life to all promoting Scottish History and Culture. We have one copy available which we actually found behind some other contest CDs as we thought we had given these all away a few years back. So, last one in our stash and the winner also gets an "Outlawed tunes on Outlawed Pipes" bumper sticker. Thanks to Albannach for making this contest possible!
Contest ends on February 15, 2014. >>>REGISTER NOW<<<

Rowan trees were planted near doors and gates to ward off evil influences and branches were attached to barns in order that the cattle housed inside would be protected from misfortune. This tree was also believed to guard the gateway to the spirit world and its boughs often used for dowsing and deflecting spells. The Rowan is sometimes called the "Whispering Tree" and ancient legend tells that it has secrets to reveal to those who would but listen.
