One of their earliest recording from 1960's, this popular duo accompanied by the Galliards features some of their trademark Scottish songs.

This recording has been digitally enhanced for CD.

Robin Hall was born in Edinburgh in 1936 but spent most of his childhood in Glasgow. He studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and formed his singing partnership with Jimmie MacGregor in 1960.

They performed extensively, with many television appearances, including "Tonight" for the BBC, which forms the basis of this album recorded in 1962. They produced over twenty albums before their partnership ended in 1981.

Their earlier recordings included the Galliards.

Sadly, Robin passed away in 1998.

Jimmie MacGregor was born in Glasgow in 1930 and studied at the Glasgow school of Art. Following his musical career, Jimmie went on to become a highly popular broadcaster, especially his radio show "MacGregors Gathering."

In 1944 he was awarded the MBE for services to Scottish heritage and culture. To this day he has a keen interest in conservation.

Take a nostalgic look back to the great era of Scottish folk song.
