The Flooers O' The Forest

Greentrax, the highly respected folk music label, are soon to release a specially produced compilation album of song and poetry remembering the battle of Flodden 1513. The CD features the best of Scottish talent, Karine Polwart, Dick Gaughan, Gary West on pipes and our own Rob Bell with his composition: The Flodden Ride. Great to see Dick and Karine on the same recording as Rob.

This year is, of course, the 500th anniversary of this pivotal moment in the relationship between Scotland and England and its effect on the Borders.
