AAVV - The Flooers O' The Forest
The Flooers O' The Forest

UK Regno Unito
doppio CD

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.
