Οι μαγικοί Σκωτσέζοι σε ονειροπολήσεις κα χορούς από τα early ’70s.
Θυμάμαι ακόμα την εντύπωση που μου είχε κάνει η σκανδαλώδης οικειότητα αυτού του πράγματος όταν το είχα πρωτακούσει…
Μήπως αρχίσουμε να διεκδικούμε την ελληνικότητα των highlands; [πλάκα κάνω]

The magic Scots, daydreaming and dancing in the early ’70s.
I still recall the impression that the scandalous familiarity of this one had left me, first time I heard it. This sounds like “ours”.
Should we start claiming the Highlands as Greek? [LOL]



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. I love jigs and reels. I also like the strings those two are pulling in the photo. The woman in the black dress with green stockings has really good form. When I first started playing guitar in the 70s, one teacher had me buy a book of jigs & reels and told me to learn to play them because they were really good exercises for fingering. They were great exercises and fun to play. I have most of my old music books, but I’ll be darned if I can find that book of jigs & reels.

Happy to hear your thoughts
