Traditional folk band Barnstorm have written and produced their piece ‘Our Scotland’ which takes inspiration from the Lammermuirs. It is a traditional-style folk song about the eastern end of the Lammermuir Hills, with lyrics focussing on the landscape and social history of the area.

This is a version of George Henderson’s Pyper Knowes rhyme put to music. Barnstorm band member Carol Dubber recorded this herself during lockdown for the Whiteadder Online Festival in May 2020

Carol Dubber: vocals / guitar / mandolin / songwriter
Chris Dubber: vocals / percussion
Alan Bradd: vocals / guitar / banjo
Kenny Tait: bass / keyboard
They enjoy performing a diverse range of musical genre including folk, pop, Americana and home-penned songs with the emphasis on vocal harmonies.
