Interests

Scottish Gaelic poetry and song. . . .
Folk/traditional song (English, Scottish, Irish, French, German, Spanish, Italian - but Scottish Gaelic comes first). . . .
Pop songs and rock and so on - for example Beatles, Françoise Hardy, Bobby Solo but not most stuff more recent than that. . .
Classical music, especially opera, piano, and clarinet. . . .
Musicals. . . .
singing (mostly folk or traditional Scottish/Irish but have sung traditional songs in other languages and sung in amateur opera and musical productions too). . . . .
Languages and linguistics. . . . .
Computers. . . . .
Seeing the world. . . . .
Walking, climbing, scrambling (but climbing is out now, too old and arthritic, and I rarely get a scramble). . . . .
Reading - linguistics and computing and maths and physics, science fiction, fantasy, history and historical novels and a lot of other stuff. . . . .
Authors and singers I like: Jean Anouilh, Edith Piaff, Luke Kelly, Tommy Makem, Ciarán Bourke, Hamish Henderson, Hilaire Belloc, Calum Kennedy, Georges Brassens, Anne Lorne-Gillies, Ferruccio Tagliavini, Marcel Pagnol, Voltaire, Leslie Charteris, Jean Giradoux, RL Stevenson, Iain MacLaine, Iain MacIllEathain, Françoise Hardy....and many more, too many to list!
