A bit of a preview, I hope, of a Mothers Day beach walk with my son and his girlfriend and dog. My aim was to gather large stones for one of my constant landscaping projects. We put stone high on the beach and marked it, then came back later by boat to pick it up and take it back to his truck. Since playing Laura Smith's wonderful version of My Bonnie, and Alan saying "I think I prefer "My Bonny" song by a traditional Scottish folk group", I am on a mission to hear a version like that. Youtube offers only children's versions which is how I learned of the song but not by a Scottish group that I have found. Here's one by a British band though: Another one that sounds English to me:
