Willie Scott was born in the Scottish village of Canonbie in the Scottish Borders in 1897, one of a family of seven.
On leaving school he worked on various farms and in his adult years more permanently on farms in Fife and Duns, Berwickshire.
In addition to his singing songs of the Scottish Borders and living the life of a shepherd, Willie was also an expert at fashioning crooks and one of them was presented to HM The Queen.
This album is a record of a Border way of life in songs.
Willie died in 1989, aged 92 years.
