I do Amy, but only because they have been recently joined by Bruce Guthro , who is pretty much been on top of the Atlantic music scene here the last few years. Prior to you mentioning them, I had yet to hear anything by Runrig but with Bruce in the band, hopefully they will visit PEI sometime soon.

The last time I saw Bruce play, he mentioned one of the band members of Runrig is/was/planned (can't remember) on doing a solo rowboat crossing of the North Atlantic from New York to somewhere in Scotland to raise money for Mental Health. Being a kayaker myself, it is probably this insane venture that made the name stand out in my mind enough to remember it.

Found a link to the artists web sight for his cross Atlantic crossing. NY2SY

Looks like he is still looking for a sponsor. Getting a sponsor for a self propelled ocean crossing is tough. Although it has been done, such ventures are pretty much considered suicide missions. If the storms, exposure or exhaustion don't get you killed, the building insanity usually finishes it. I wish him all the best if he sets out though.

Just digging Bruce Guthro's Farewell to Nova Scotia - I've never heard it at that tempo. What a great voice!

Very cool version of Every River (runrig song): http://youtu.be/mwqUQHxzQzo

It's genetic - I can never resist a penny whistle.

It is Axiom-ite obscure! LOL! Don't make me wish Pat Benetar on you again!

Just listening to the Tori Amos' I Don't Like Mondays - awesome! I only knew the Boomtown version.

My poor iTunes balance!!

Okay, while you're out there checking out the Tori Amos version, a very tough call on the Tori Amos / Leonard Cohen Suzanne B-2-B. I don't think I can make a call! But go on and try, Mark - hit it with your best shot (fire awaaaaay).
