Video: “Loch Lomond” at David’s

Slowly darkness falls over my garden and the torches are lit.

From my balcony I watch until I can play.

“Loch Lomond” is a well-known Scottish traditional. We play it also, with our torches and the bagpipes

After the song we play “Farewell to the Creeks”. It’s standing in “The Scottish Guards”. It’s also a traditional Scottish tune.

We can not do it here inside. So we’re going back to the garden

Have fun watching this video! “Loch Lomond” at David’s

Video: Jock Stuart at Balver Höhle

I now really start to feel the pressure of doing so many gigs in a month and trying to keep the video’s coming.

Thank you so much for your help and understanding!
