The Chattahoochee Folk Hour goes to Scotland

Travel across the pond in this episode and enjoy Scottish folk singers recorded at the Royal Oak Pub in Edinburgh.  A few months ago, my brother and I travelled to the UK to visit my son, Leland, a PHD candidate in genomics and bioinformatics at Cambridge University.  I packed my digital recorder and we ventured up to Scotland to experience the rich folk music scene in Edinburgh.  Many thanks to my son Leland for the trip of a lifetime.
