The setting given is slightly different to the ones mentioned above, and is taken from a 1981 LP called ‘Fergusson’s Auld Reekie’, recorded by members of the Edinburgh group Jock Tamson’s Bairns and Billy Kay, and exploring the poetry of Robert Fergusson (1750-1774).

DEREK Hoy balanced a public life as a fiddle player with the near-legendary Jock Tamson’s Bairns and other folk bands with a far lesser known but immensely far-reaching career as an innovator in the field of information and communications technology in health care. At the beginning of the 1980s, he joined the ranks of Jock Tamson’s Bairns, playing on their second album, The Lasses Fashion, as the band established a reputation for an authentic yet individualistic approach to Scottish music that lasted long after they dispersed in 1983. Known to his fellow musicians by his school nickname of Happy, supposedly due to his long face, Hoy played in radio and stage productions with broadcaster Billy Kay, including Fergusson’s Auld Reekie, and also in the music-theatre productions of Mike Maran, including the Neil Gunn-inspired Atom of Delight, from which Hoy’s winsome title tune has taken on a life.

Jock Tamson's Bairns, Category: Artist, Albums: Jock Tamson's Bairns, May You Never Lack A Scone, Biography: Although they remained together only a short time in the initial stage of their career, Jock Tamson's Bairns became one of the most acclaimed traditional Scottish bands of the last two decades of the 20th century, with luminaries like Alasdair Fraser and Richard Thompson counting themselves as admirers. Monthly Listeners: 103, Where People Listen: Edinburgh, London, Glasgow, Dublin, Helsinki. Cuffe, Chalmers, Hoy, and Paterson all provided instrumental backing for reader Billy Kay on a 1981 tribute to Scottish poet Robert Fergusson, Fergusson's Auld Reikie. Then, in 1982, the Bairns signed with the Topic label and released their landmark masterpiece, The Lasses Fashion, a spirited recording which drew from across the spectrum of traditional Scottish music.

Auld Reekie", "Edina", "Athens of the North". Location within Scotland. It's time now bairns, to tak' the beuks, and gang to our beds, for yonder's Auld Reekie, I see, putting on her nicht -cap!". Some have called Edinburgh the Athens of the North for a variety of reasons. The earliest comparison between the two cities showed that they had a similar topography, with the Castle Rock of Edinburgh performing a similar role to the Athenian Acropolis.

The album portrays the teeming life of Edinburgh's closes, tenements and taverns in the 1770's through the vivid poetry of Fergusson and the great Scots songs and airs that he loved. Fergusson was born in the Cap and Feather Close off the High Street of Edinburgh on September 5th 1750, and died tragically in the city's Bedlam or madhouse a mere 24 years later. The poetry is read by Billy Kay, and the music and songs of 18th Century Edinburgh played by Tony Cuffe of Ossian, and Norman Chalmers, Derek Hoy and Rod Paterson of Jock Tamson's Bairns.

Alba recorded one album in 1977, before Cuffe joined the initial line-up of another influential Scots band, Jock Tamson’s Bairns, with whom he made an album before joining the internationally popular Ossian, with whom he toured widely. As well as his band and solo work, other projects included appearances in two 7:84 Theatre productions and contributions to the notable Fergusson’s Auld Reekie album of poetry and song and early volumes of Linn Records’ ongoing Burns songs series. In 1988, then living in Edinburgh, he found himself faced with a heavy year’s touring, largely in the United States: at the same time his wife, Cath, was looking for ways to advance her nursing career, and an opportunity came up in Boston. The family moved to Arlington, outside Boston
