Aberdeenshire music isn't something I know much about (although I'm missing the Orkney music a lot....) Most of what I know is either Bothy Ballads (and I don't know many of those) or songs done by the excellent band Old Blind Dogs.
I've now been out exploring a bit further afield, and have come across some of the places mentioned in OBD songs.
The Back of Bennachie....
O Gin I were whaur the Gadie rins (I passed whaur the Gadie rins on my way to the Back of Bennachie.)
Battle of Harlaw - I passed the site of it too.
More about the Back of Bennachie soon..... and hopefully more Aberdeenshire music in the future too.
