For the latest podcast, Ali and Ian took a trip to the edge of Edinburgh to talk to one of Scottish music’s great voices and characters, Ronnie Browne. By his own admission Ronnie is best known as one half of The Corries, but there other tales to tell, and he kindly agreed to talk us about his recently published autobiography, Ronnie Browne: That Guy Fae The Corries.
As you’ll hear, there’s far more to Ronnie’s life than that, and what unfolds is 40 minutes of conversation which is thoughtful, at times moving, at others uproarious, and always entertaining. Ronnie talks about his young life in Edinburgh, his career as an artist, the strength he has gained from his family life, as well as his time as one of Scotland’s most iconic musicians. It is a life well lived, and spending time in the man’s company you realise it always would have been no matter what as he has a spirit that could never be denied.
