This album was originally released in 2003 and features Ivan's interpretations of some well loved traditional tunes and songs

1.BON CLAUDY.
Not sure where I first heard this song but have always loved the melody. The only other recording I know of is by the Fureys.
2. FAREWELL TO FUINARY.
Written by Norman MacLeod, Sir Maxwell MacLeod of Fuinary says: “My family tradition is that the song was first penned in English by my forebear Carid Nan Ghael (the friend of the Highlander) as a Sunday afternoon task set in a big house somewhere in Kintyre”.
3. GLORIA’S TUNE.
The only tune on the album that isn’t traditional. I wrote it for a friend’s mother while living in Inverness.
4. AYE WAUKIN O.
Robert Burns is credited with this song which he “brushed up” from an earlier work. His version is the most commonly known. It shares part of its lyric with a number of other songs including The Hexamshire Lass” as performed by Fairport Convention and others.
5. ROLLING HOME.
I first heard this song by the excellent singer Iain MacGillvery from Inverness. The song has its roots in a poem by Scots poet and songwriter, Charles Mackay. His journal says it was written “on board the Europa, homeward bound, May 26 1858”.
6. AE FOND KISS.
A beautiful song by Scotland’s bard, Robert Burns. Written for his close friend Agnes Maclehose, Burns wrote 'Ae fond kiss' after their final meeting and sent it to her on 27 December 1791 before she departed Edinburgh for Jamaica to be with her estranged husband.
7. MORMOND BRAES.
I’ve no idea where I first heard this, it has always been at the back of my mind. Mormond Braes is near Strichen in Aberdeenshire.
8. THE ROWAN TREE.
Learned at the foot of my grandmother, her favourite song. There are words to this tune, written by Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne of Perthshire.
9. JOCK O HAZELDEAN.
Always a favourite, the song has been covered by many artists over the years. It was written by Sir Walter Scott based on a much older ballad.
10. ROSE OF ALLANDALE.
I first heard this from the singing of the excellent Mary Black. Whether the song title is about the town in Hexamshire or somewhere in Scotland is open to question. It was written by Charles Jeffreys and Sidney Nelson in the 1840s.
11. BROOM O THE COWDENKNOWES.
Another song, like many on here, which I learned when a little boy. A traditional Scottish love ballad. Certainly traceable back to the seventeenth century, its exact origin is unknown.
12. MAGGIE LAUDER.
Learnt from the wonderful Dick Gaughan, do check out his version. A very old song written by Francis Sempill of Beltrees in Renfrewshire in the 1600s.
