Ronnie Brown to join the Douglas Gathering at lennoxlove

Ronnie Brown, of the Corries, seen here with the late Duke of Hamilton, will be at Lennoxlove for the Douglas Clan Gathering to talk about his painting on 2nd July.

Towards the end of the afternoon, we will be entertained by the Haddington Pipe Band.

It should be a memorable afternoon.

Thank you, William. Much appreciated! Looking forward to the possibility of a video of this event and or some clear images of this wonderful painting. It is my pleasure to contribute a wee small bit to this website. And yes, there are some more songs to post. I have just been pacing myself.

I will see what we can do for you, Jackson, so answer your questions.
Thank you for posting the videos of the Corries.  If you can find any other Douglas songs or tunes, that would be good.  Are there any pipe tunes?

Very much wish I could attend the Douglas gathering and this event in particular! I am fascinated by history passed down through songs; Better still Douglas history!  Ronnie Brown and the Corries have more Douglas songs than any other group or musician that I am aware of. I am curious, what is Ronnie Browns connection to the Douglases? Also, is there any other, more detailed images of this painting? If possible to do so, can someone PLEASE video this discussion about this painting by Ronnie Brown and post it here to the Douglas Archives? Thank you.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
