Hey Dick, I didn’t know that Jimmy McBeath, Jeannie Robertson, and Lizzie Higgins were members of the Session.org 🙂

Well reminded John, I meant to add this quote from the sleeve notes:

"Worthy of special mention is the performance by the late Arthur Argo, the driving force behind the formation of the club in 1962.
Aberdeenshire is unique as a source of traditional song.
This is reflected in the performances by Jeannie Robertson & Jimmy McBeath, both of whom appeared regulsrly at the club."

Now, when was the session.org started? 😉

I would love to hear this recording. A friend of mine, Karen Paterson, plays there in track 18. Do you know when this was recorded? Thanks.


"Ptarmigan" says right at the top - 1992. Where do you know Karen from, McGregor ? e-mail me throught he site - I think I might have a spare copy.

Well, I’m sitting here trying to work out who is behind all these user names. No room to speak though - it’s Karin Paterson here. Hello everyboy!! Somewhere along the way my copy of this album went astray - any chance of getting one from anywhere???

Hey Hotstring! How’s it going - or rather Foo’s it gang quine? Are you still in Norway?

Hey Dick, you spelt my surname wrong, it should be "Pirrie". BTW, met Kathleen at the end of a very long queue for "The Tasty Bake", or some shop named like that on the main street in Miltown.

…is Andy M.Stewart’s comical song "At It Again", followed by "The Swaggering Jig".
