|Bonny Ship The Diamond
The first single from our forthcoming album, ‘Awaken’. Bonny Ship the Diamond is a A Scottish song written about a notable Aberdeenshire whaling ship in the 1820s. After sailing for just a few years The Diamond, along with a fleet of other ships, was crushed by pack ice off the coast of Greenland. In some ways, songs about whaling may seem anachronistic to modern audiences (and we certainly don’t support it), but it was an undeniably significant part of life for many communities and individuals on the northwest coasts of Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries.
