The Flooers O' The Forest
UK Regno Unito
September 2013 marks the 500th Anniversary of The Battle of Flodden, when an English Army crushed a Scottish Army. This was slaughter on both sides, on a terrible scale. The album is dedicated to the memory of all those who fell on the bloody battlefield in September 1513. We hope it is a fitting tribute.
Many tracks were licensed from labels worldwide, while others were recorded specially for the project. This has been a labour of love for all concerned.
Musical artists are Dick Gaughan, Archie Fisher & Garnet Rogers, Celticburn, Lau, Karine Polwart, Steve McDonald, Rob Bell, The Owel Service & Alison O'Donnell, 'McCalman, Quigg & Bayne', Gary Cleghorn, Scocha, Drinkers' Drouth with Davy Steele, Robin Laing, Gary West and the children of Drumlanrig & St Cuthberts Primary School, Hawick.
The poems and prose are read by BBC Radio Scotland presenter Iain Anderson, the actor John Shedden, and Alastair McDonald.
