Homage to (Sir) Big Yin

Homage to Billy Connolly on being knighted.

Recalling his music teacher:

“She was a psychopath. Totally addicted to ‘Mhairi’s Wedding.’ Every music lesson we got “Mhairi’s Wedding’…

…Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel
That’s the toast for Mhàiri.


Step me gaily, on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and row on row
All for Mhàiri’s wedding.”
