Anne Cormack Origins: Westering Home (Hugh Roberton) (106* d) RE: Lyrics? Westering home and a song in the air 19 Apr 97


Westering Home is most definitely a Scottish song, the island that is mentioned is Islay,which is in the Hebrides off the north-west coast of Scotland - incidentally they make a very fine whisky too!!! The words were written by Hugh S. Robertson (1874 - 1952). The tune is partly "Bonny Strathyre", while the chorus was taken from the singing of Donald McIsaac. Robertson was knighted for his services to music in 1931.

Regards

Anne
