The Corries

The Corries were a Scottish folk group that emerged from the Scottish folk revival of the early 1960s. The group was a trio 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. Aberdonian Pamela White has always been a big fan of the Corries. She says there is ‘no one like the Corries’. They sang all of the old Scottish ballads from ancient times and made their own instruments. Pamela came to see them at the Music Hall every year for 20 years. She says they were ‘alive and vital’ and ‘engaged the whole audience’. Some concerts she remembered were recorded live and they always started with Johnny Ladd.
