John Watt & Davey Stewart "The Shores Of The Forth"

The Shores Of The Forth' - an improved audio version of this great song paying homage to the heyday of the herring fishing. This song was composed by Matt Armour from Anstruther in Fife, and it is sung here with Davey Stewart and backed by the Beggar's Mantle Ceilidh Band. The second tune is 'Fisher's Hornpipe.' 'The Shores Of The Forth' has now been newly released by Springthyme Records on a digitally remastered CD.
