12 traditional-idiom songs, written in Orcadian and Lowland Scots & Scots English, from critically-acclaimed (see https://boblesliemusic.com/reviews/ ) singer-songwriter, Bob Leslie.
The album title is derived from a line in Hugh Macdiarmid’s "A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle" - The Barren Fig was how he described Scotland, saying it would take a "miracle" to make it blossom. Well, maybe we're living in the age of miracles!
“I can think of no other songwriter who has mined this rich vein
“ Bob’s songs are imaginative, well researched, witty and thought provoking .”
“Bob’s material is beautifully crafted and reflects a deep connection to his Scottish roots.”
