now playing: Eddi Reader: Aye Waulkin' O: video
This Robert Burns song has always struck me as holding both the promise and the sadness of springtime, without saying anything about any of that in the lyrics, and although it begins in summer. Paul Brady, Donald Shaw, Karen Matheson, and Aly Bain are among those backing up Eddi Reader in this clip from Transatlantic Sessions 3. If you'd like to know more about Reader and her work, please check out the current issue of the folk music magazine Dirty Linen for a recent interview.
