Does anyone else know Runrig?
First heard them when I was living in Northern Ireland in the 90s. (CDs cost 25 pounds sterling at the time - how wild is that?) There is something so timeless about their music - still listening to it all these years later - even the Galic bits.
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.
