“I can think of no other songwriter who has mined this rich vein
with such lyrical ease and with no mean ear for melody. ”
Alan Reid, Battlefield Band

Bob Leslie – Scottish Traditional Singer & Songwriter

Well (sounds fanfare), it’s out!!!yay

In Praise of Crows is now officially released as of 19th March 2021, and it’s already getting great REVIEWS!

You can buy the hard-copy CD HERE. It’s well worth it, the cover alone is a collector’s item and the songs are quite good -nope, too British – the songs are BRILLIANT!!!

Previews (3 free plays) and high-quality digital downloads are available from Bandcamp, & streaming is available from Spotify et al.

Here’s a shot of the cover by artist and fellow songwriter Randall Stephen Hall. You’ve done a great job, Stiofán!
