Scotland - Blue Skies

In these very strange times, Scotland are back. Like schools across Europe, we are currently closed, and in a situation of limbo, unsure of what the future holds.

Our school choir, along with a few children from a school close by, Aberlady, were hard at work before lockdown on this piece and so we present it here in SV2020 as a message of hope...Hope for the future for all of us.

Let's hope there are Blue Skies ahead for ALL of us!

Remarkably, both the audio and video were recorded entirely on various devices at home, then put together and edited, and we give a very special thanks to music teacher Kenny Hutchison and also to Pippa Murphy for their expertise in bringing this all together!

  3. Like so many of us, you had to be very innovative to finish your video from homes or did you even do it all like that? Anyway you did it very well! The melody of the song is beautiful. It was nice to see the traditional Scottish landscape and the sheep and all the other animals :) The rhythm club members from Kurittula, Finland, send you warm wishes and good luck!

  4. The song is very calm and beautiful. Looking at your video I feel that everything is going to be ok. You are singing like angels and I like the video a lot, especially a fat cat :D

    Good luck from Estonia

  10. Teri, Viki, Adam, David from Slovakia: Kind atmosphere, so positive and funny, even though it shows us the kids in quarantine, on their own. The song flows nicely, like The Water Leith through Edinbourgh :-)And the baby sheep, so typical for spring in Scotland, lovely!

    1. Haha, thank you for that lovely comment David! I'm obviously imagining you have experience of the Water of Leith...

    I found the melody very beautiful, because I play the piano myself.
