Grace Campbell Grierson live at Hatton Castle videohttps://www.youtube.com/v/0xCg8GGfJHw?version=3
Watch Simon and Dave perform Grace Campbell Grierson from their album Potraits at Hatton Castle.
“Grace Campbell Grierson” was written by Simon in tribute to his nana, who passed away in the 1970s when Simon was seven years old. Her name was Grace Campbell Grierson, and she was a kind woman who lived on the same street as Simon’s family in Currie, Edinburgh. Simon has many happy memories sitting and watching TV with her including watching the Irish R.M. (with Peter Bowles) where he first heard the jig ‘Haste to the Wedding’. Grace and her husband Jack raised three children, Norman, Allan, and Elizabeth (Simon’s mother). Grace’s family hailed from Portree in Skye. Simon composed this tune as a tribute to his grandmother for his mother’s birthday.
