Keep the bottle going round Let the whisky flow A tear for the sober and a health for the road Chalk up the bow Play a tune that we all know Once again we’re gathered here How the year has spun Shadows have fallen like a shawl around the sun And every face I look upon is as new as it is old Roll on Roll on Roll on Roll on The girl with the gold and the feathers in her hair Was down by the water coming up for air As she rose and she wandered All the valley sang The tales that we told in the chalk yellow sun Are fallen from grace now the nights coming on Deep down in the blue light The sky’s rolling in Roll on etc Each of us a traveller we’re all just passing through Soon those shifting winds will see us spinning out of view Sending us a wandering Till the next scene unfolds The marks that these moments lay upon our skin Wood smoke and the firelight twisting in the rain We’ll cast them in the river And watch them as they roll Roll on etc

about

The album features 20 tracks from artists who performed at Virtually Knockengorroch – an interactive Knockengorroch festival livestream held in May 2020. The compilation includes two tracks written in honour of Knockengorroch including the single Roll On by Ewan McLennan released in Nov 2020, another three recorded for the first time for the album and donated recordings from an inspiring mix of folk, world and electronic music acts who were part of the virtual celebration earlier this year.
One of Scotland’s longest running greenfield festivals, Knockengorroch is normally held in the beautifully secluded Carsphairn hills in south west Scotland every May, bringing an exciting array of traditional, electronic and world music acts to the hills of Galloway.
Due to Covid-19, the event’s 2020 edition was cancelled and organisers put on an online festival in its place. Despite being hosted digitally, Virtually Knockengorroch embodied the authentic, participatory nature of the event, with attendees able to interact with the performances via Zoom.
Following its success, organisers decided to pay tribute to the festival’s unique atmosphere, and the feelings of community and connection it evokes, by capturing the sounds of the festival in a specially curated album.
