Subject: Birnam Oak
I was listening to NPR Saturday, January 25 to a British folk music
show, and a Scots guy named
Pete Clark was interviewed about a song he composed and performs called
He said it was commissioned by Fiddle 2000 in Edinburgh, and he
mentioned Birnam Woods "immortalized in Shakespeare's in Macbeth."
I liked the song.
[Editor's Note: Anyone who has traveled in Scotland recently knows of
the difficulty of finding accommodations that are not booked long in
advance. Fortuitously, this summer we stayed in Birnam at the Birnam
Wood Guest House, a brief walk from the one "surviving" Birnam Oak.
Couldn't pass that one up. -Hardy]
