The Crinan Puffer
I was up at Crinan walking along the canal and enjoying the sight of the old steam puffer called VIC32 (www.savethepuffer.co.uk) when this jolly little slide came to me. I hope you like it - I think it captures some of the joy of a steam driven boat puffing through the western isles on a sunny spring morning.
First part reminds me of, oh, what’s that Scottish song called, “My Bonnie”? It’s the one where the chorus goes “Bring back, bring back, oh bring back my Bonnie to me. Bring back, bring back, oh bring back my Bonnie to me.”
Anybody else hear that song in their head while playing this tune?
