Annie McKelvie Again
#2
We have met the "Star O' The Bar" many times over the years at folk festivals. I'll not give personal details but she was a former fiance of the song's author in her younger days. True story.

Also, we went on a sail from Plockton once and the boatman claimed to be related to Kenny Gillies of Portnalong. His brother or cousin, if I recall.
It may have been this man https://calums-sealtrips.com/our-story/ but I can't remember. Maybe another boat?
I remember playing my mandolin on board and he was quite chuffed as it attracted the seals to the boat for the tourists.

I love passing all the places which have tunes named after them in my travels. Too many to mention.
