Seeds To The Wind

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1991:] Inspiration for this song came from Colin whose family originated in Braes, on the Island of Skye (some still live there). A battle was fought there by men and women who did not want to leave, but were in the end physically made to go by both police and militia. The irksome factor is that the person instructing the police and militia was the clan chief Ronald McDonald. - An interesting point is that it was the women who really gave the police and militia a hard time. The men still held their chief in awe and couldn't believe he was behind it at all. (Davy Steele, notes Ceolbeg, 'Seeds to the Wind')
