The Corries were a Scottish folk group that emerged from the Scottish folk revival of the early 1960s. The group was a trio from their formation until 1966 when founder Bill Smith left the band but Roy Williamson and Ronnie Browne continued as a duo until Williamson's death in 1990. In the early 1960s, Bill Smith (born William Smith, in 1936, in Edinburgh), Ron Cruikshank and Andy Turner had formed a trio called The Corrie Voices

THE CORRIES, SPOTLIGHT . .has been added to your Basket. I love the Scottish ballads and the Corries have recorded many of those ballads on several occasions. This audio CD has some more very nice songs to offer such as Haughs o'Cromdale-Hills of Ardmore and Glenlyon Lament. Enjoy the ballads together with a good glass of whiskey.
