Learn "Da Slockit Light" (Shetland Air from CTL):


Friday

12:30-1:30PM

Location: R4

Instructor: HEELY[F]

Style: Scottish Shetland

From our Common Tune List, this great tune by Shetland Fiddler Tom Anderson is about the gradual trend of migration away from the Shetland Islands. "Da Slockit Light" was inspired by the depopulation of the area of Eshaness where he was born. The song reflects his impression that each time the occupants of another croft moved out, or died, another light was "slockit" (Shetland for extinguished).
