Dedications to my friends

Sometimes words alone are not enough to express how we feel, and music can fill the gaps very well. I’ve combed the Runrig archive in order to find just the right songs for each of you who were so kind in hosting me throughout my recent travels. Please see the list of dedications below, and at the bottom of this journal entry, I will also post the lyrics…

And – if I were to choose one song that sums up the trip for me, it would be the one called All the Miles from Proterra (“you were with me all the way...”)

My list mentions the original CDs on which these songs can be found, but some CDs are no longer available since the band has retired. For that reason, I’ve tried to choose from songs that you can also find on their recent concert releases — mainly their final concert tour called The Last Dance. In fact, if you get the DVD, you might even spot us in the crowd — Gary, Geraldine and me attending that final concert in 2018! (@ 44 1/2 min)

The CD, DVD, and more can be found in the Runrig Shop here.
