My Ain Folk

Wind Band

Song Arrangement





This highly popular Scottish song (subtitled A Ballad of Home) was in fact composed by a Canadian, Laura Gertrude Lemon (15 October 1866 – 18 August 1924) who lived and worked in England, with words by a Londoner Wilfred Mills (the pen name of William Alfred Braund) who never set foot in Scotland.

It was first published in 1905 and has subsequently become a favourite for Scots remembering their homeland when far away from home.

This arrangement is for soprano for band and was featured on the RAF Massed Bands Tour 1999.
