I was in the audience last night in Welland and was blown away with your performance.
I love your relaxed presence on stage, I felt as if I was sitting in some one's living room just listening to a fabulous story teller singing his stories. GREAT.
During David's performance he sang a song about leaving Scotland. That song hit such a place in my heart that I was not sitting crying, I was sobbing.
When we left Scotland in '73 we had 2 children. Leaving was especially hard on my 7 year old son Scott. You see just like David he was leaving his beloved Granny behind. For the first couple of months, I could hardly get him to eat and he faded away from a rambunctious wee boy too a wee sad soul. He eventually made friends and Granny came for a holiday and all was well. He is now (like David ) fiercely proud of his adopted country and works as a biologist with Parks Canada.
But listening to that sound gave me a insight into that poor wee boys head during those first trying months.
Could you please tell me which album I could find that song on so I can buy it. I would love to share it with my son. (answer: The Parting from Seaway)
Thank you in advanceKeep up the good work! M
