Awa’ hame

I’m a day late this year with the haggis, neeps and tatties and whisky, but better late than never. There’s too much going on at the moment, and add to that the happy new Ox year celebrations too, I’m all celebratory-mealed-out now. Still, as is customary in our house, in addition to the food and drink, Eddi Reader’s album of Robert Burns song covers is taken out, dusted down and given another spin. Burns celebrations may be a little more low key in our house this year, but not up in the homeland. They’re going for it full-pelt this year, the bard’s 250th anniversary, trying hard to get anybody with a connection to Scotland to head there. Good luck to them. Who knows, I might even head back up myself…

Eddi Reader’s Sings the Songs of Robert Burns has just been re-released by Rough Trade with extra tracks - download from emusic. Joanna Newsom’s song  unfortunately isn’t officially available anywhere yet.
