Local band Rough Edges have released their fish mega-farm protest song "Loch Linnhe Blues" across global streaming services.
As Malcolm Knowlson, the band's guitarist, explains: “We came up with a riff and put some words to the song, we played it at the local village hall and it just grew and grew from there. All around here the strength of feeling has grown against this proposal...I think what they are proposing is just ludicrous."
"What started as a laugh with the song seems to have captured the imagination of our community and we hope it will act as a voice on our feelings towards this unproven fish farm proposal.” says Malcolm.
The song was professionally recorded at St Mary’s Space on nearby Loch Creran by sound engineer/producer Jamie Smith, and is available on Youtube and Spotify. To sing along, download the lyrics from the link below!
