:( - that's a little dissappointing but at least they haven't ruled out a tour in the future. At one point i had heard something about the band having little interest in coming over. Perhaps with an increaingly positive reaction to Bruce Guthro's solo music in Canada at least, there will be even more support for Runrig crossing the mighty atlantic.

Well, you still might have a chance in Canada or USA. I live in Peru unfortunately..lol, no chance to ever see them here...

:D  :D  :D Well by now u know i am an ardent rr fan if u have followed my other postings lol. But i couldnt resist this one hehe. Aye they certainly are one of the best bands around; hopefully they will go on for a few years still as i easily can imagine u can get fed up living on the road for 30 years ... But dont lets think of that, brr it makes me shiver. The lads still have loads of fun and write brilliant songs and the new cd is due to come out around chrismas just in time for Barrowlands lol. I owe them soooo much ... Thanks Rory, Calum, Bruce, Malcolm, Iain and Brian for everything (and not just for bringing me up here ...). Well some of u might have guessed who i am lol so i would be interested who of the other chatters are in here. And maybe you know how to write Sgiathnach in the right way by now looool

I could tell that from your ID alone.

Flower Of The West

Sunburst
The morning moar
The light of God
The heart of youth
I look around me
My eyes find their rest on this garden
The flower of the west

The silent skies
An innocent heart
Holding the moment away
From time in the dark
All I see. All I know
Is touching the sacred earth
Warming the hallowed ground

Walk on
Walk on
Walk on

Sunrise
The colour frontier
The ageing light
The sight that knows no fear
I look over Orinsay to the Trumisgarry shore
To Aloter
And the road to Ahmore

The silent skies
An innocent heart
Holding the moment away
From time in the dark
All I see. All I know
Is touching the sacred earth
Warming the hallowed ground

I survive the childhood universe
And I step the naked heath
Where the breathing of the vanished
Lies in acres round my feet
Past Loch Scadavagh Loch Fada
And the flatlands to the east
Where the dark blue mass of Eval
Meets the rising Rock of Lee
Between the Crogary and Maairi
I started to descend
Loch Aongais on my left hand side
I look across to Clett
Collies barking on the outrun
Dunlin dancing on the sand
Breakers show round Corran Vallique
And empty the Atlantic on the strand

The silent skies
An innocent heart
Holding the moment away
From time in the dark
All I see. All I know
Is touching the sacred earth
Warming the hallowed ground

Flower of the west

:p

Thank ye Scottish! Aye a wonderful song and tho it is more about Uibhst it also applies to Skye where Rory, Calum, Donnie and Malcolm went to school. Long time it took them to find their Gaelic identity, twenty years i believe. They wrote a song about it - Fichead Bliadhna. I love their lyrics: one of my favourites is Heart of olden glory:

Theres thunder clouds round the hometown bay
as I walk out in the rain
Through the sepia showers and fotoflood days.

I caught a gleating glimpse of life
and though the waters black as night
The colours of Scotland leave you young inside.

There must be a place under the sun,
where hearts of olden glory grow young.

There s a vision coming soon

Down the lens where the headlands stand
i feel a healing through the land
a cross for a people
like the wind through your hands.

There must be a pace under the sun
where hearts of olden glory grow young.

I love the Proclaimers....   the fact that they would not 'modify' their Fife accents for anyone is just one reason that I like them.  The lyrics of their songs are great, too.

Their 'Letter from America' - with the echoes of the newer clearances in Scotland - 'Bathgate no more, Linwood no more, Irvine no more'.....   all those places were the centres of industry in Scotland which have been decimated by industrial decline....  they are high unemployment black spots in Scotland and a reason why so many Scots emigrated in the 1970s 80s and 90s....  most have chosen to go to  Australia - it's guaranteed sunshine and very British outlook appeals to so many!

I haven't seen any mention of 'Capercaillie' here.  I have a number of their early CDs.

:rolleyes Aye the Proclaimers no bad .... and just to tease ye I saw them life in Portree this July. They are almost as good as Runrig ;-). And their lifesshow s great. It was quite short though - but admittedly, watching the twins I think I know why they only played a bit more than an hour. Nevertheless it was a great night ... but now i am looking forward to Barrowlands LoL (verra impatient now hehe). Aye Capercaillie are superb too i ve got a couple of cds and tapes as well. Great for Gaelic Songs.  (d)

I've seen both the Proclaimers and Capercaillie, live.  I prefer the Proclaimers, though.

For those of you who don't know what a Capercaillie is.... it's kinda like a very large grouse or pheasant...   they live in the northern highlands :)

Runrig, they aren't bad. Not my favorite group though.
