The Sorries (The Sorries)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

By now, many festival goers may have grown weary of traditional Scottish music, having heard it being blasted from every souvenir shop from Princes Street to the Royal Mile. But the Sorries are here to put the ‘rad’ into traditional (I know, sorry). From the tragic tale of injustice in ‘MacPherson’s Rant’, through the soft love ballad ‘Leezie Lindsay’, to their cover of The Corries ‘Johnny Lad’ updated with humorous political lyrics, the pair had the audience fully immersed in their show, singing and clapping along to almost every song. The banter between the duo in between songs was priceless, not to mention their guitar solo battle during ‘The Tree In The Wood’ – not a dull moment was had.

Quaker Meeting House, 8 – 27 Aug (not 14, 21), 4.30pm (5.30pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp220.
