New song and music video - 'The Walter Scott Blues'

 Latest offering from the McRae/Walden writing partnership - a humourous and, in the end, poignant reflection on the legacy and influence of famous 19th Century author Sir Walter Scott in today's world.

Did Sir Walter really invent Scottish identity as we know it?  Was Mark Twain correct to blame Scott for causing the American Civil War? Almost 200 years after his death is the ongoing, online battle between Nationalists and Unionists in Scotland ('Nats' and 'Yoons') part of Scott's legacy?

Look out for a cameo appearance from a 20-something 'Jimi the piper' in the lead up to the final battle scenes.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the video possible. Hope you enjoy!
