Bobbie Lawrie's


Roberta (Bobbie) Lawrie comes from the musical Lawrie family from Birmingham, England. On one occasion when I was visiting her home, Bobbie recorded some of her compositions for me. At that time, nobody in her household knew that she was composing tunes on her whistle. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to capture some of these tunes on tape. Catherine McEvoy was delighted to learn and play this tune for this collection. As mentioned elsewhere, Catherine also grew up in Birmingham.
