Nell Hannah: Aye Singin an Spinnin Yarns

Nell Hannah: Aye Singin an Spinnin Yarns

conversation with folklorist Margaret Bennett and long-time friend and fellow-singer, Doris Rougvie, Nell shares a life-time of reminiscences and songs. In recalling the hey-day of an industry that shut down in the 1980s, she constructs an oral history of life in war-time Perthshire. Then, following life’s paths with its twists and turns, Nell tells how, at the age of sixty-nine, she discovered her gift of singing and entertaining. Having made her first recording, a cassette, at the age of seventy, and her fifth, a CD, at the age of 90, Nell can hold an audience in the palm of her hand.
