"This split 7" record is being released in tandem with the compilation album Whaur the Pig Gaed on the Spree: Scottish Recordings by Alan Lomax 1951-'57. The A-side of the single is Alasdair Roberts' own arrangement and performance (with renowned Scottish singer Karine Polwart) of 'Captain Wedderburn's Courtship,' a traditional ballad included on Whaur the Pig... from the mouth of an octogenarian farmer named Willie Mathieson. The flipside features another young and talented traditionally-minded Scots singer, Drew Wright, who turns in an interpretation of the classic Scots border ballad, 'The Dowie Dens O Yarrow.'"
