Bob has sung traditional Scottish and Irish songs for over forty years, and indeed IT was the very first music he performed live on stage. Bob was heavily influenced by the singing of Ronnie Browne from the Corries Scottish Folk duo and Tommy Makem the well renowned Irish folk singer.

Some of Bob's traditional or traditional-sounding songs are;-


Mhairi's wedding,

Mingulay boat Song,

Doon in the wee room,

Loch Lomond,

Molly Malone,

The drunken sailor,

The Gallawa hills,

Skye boat song,

Bonnie lass o' Fyvie,

Ca the yowes,

Green grow the rashes o'

A man's man for a' that,

Macpherson's lament,

I'll tell my ma,

Dirty old town,

The road to Dundee,

Shoals of herring,

Wild mountain thyme,

Ye Jacobites by name,

Scotsman's kilt,

Gypsy rover,

Flower of Scotland,

The rare ould times,

The winter it is past,

Come by the hills,

As I roved out,

Auld lang Syne,

All for me grog,
