Series 14 Programme 1
The Two Wills are down the Ards peninsula meeting with a wheen o auld freens and enjoying plenty of crack in the Ulster-Scots tongue. They start off in the Young’s home at Tullycavey, near Greyabbey, where Sally and Samuel Young are joined by Andy Brown. The five friends have a bit of a blether ranging from farming conditions about 40 or 50 years ago in the days when folk had to really work; to shooting pheasants for lunch; to the naming of the Haw Hill; to sytheing in the fields. Things were different in those days - with no washing machines, the goat after the long-johns, a tramp in every town, and plenty of fleas and lice!
Sally talks about her work on the ongoing Ulster-Scots Bible translation. The friends talk about how there are some variations in words between Ulster-Scots in different counties - and Sally reads an extract from the first draft of the Gospel of Luke, the parable of the lost sheep.
Andy talks about his love of music and how it’s only in the last five years that he’s taken up the fiddle, the banjo and the mandolin: then he plays a tune he’s learned in a fiddle class taught by Niall Dornan.
The crack continues from sewing to Sally’s dowry to a sow with a litter of 17 piglets!
