Relaxing Music on a Stormy Islay Evening

Islay Music in stencil

And now for something completely different. I assume most of you will be aware of the storm which hit Scotland and Islay today, also known as Hurricane Bawbag. Ron has covered it in Update on the Islay Storm and Saligo Bay Islay during the Storm. James Deane has a few shots in the The Mighty 8th December album and Phil Gray has an mazing picture of Bowmore Pier in the storm. After all that excitement I thought at least some of you would like something more relaxing:

Many people will be familiar with Rebecca Brown from various performances on Islay, she's one of the musicians in my Traditional Music at the Port Charlotte Hotel, Islay video. I believe she now lives in Glasgow but returns to Islay regularly. Unfortunately I don't know anything about Sean Thomson. Here's another tune from the two:

I hope you've found this relaxing after such a wild day. I'll try to pick a calm picture for the Friday Islay Picture tomorrow…
