In the latest ‘It’s a Fair Question’ the Moderator chats with Robert Robertson of the Scottish Folk Pop band Tide Lines. Robert, says Martin t has a grounding in Christian faith and though that’s not explicit in his lyrics, it didn’t surprise me as the music has a soulful and spiritual quality to it.”

Hector Morrison points out the the Rev Donald MacQuarrie gets a mention in the interview – Robert, who grew up in Lochaber, attended Donald’s Church as a child, and refers to him as ‘a big influence.’ (About 21 minutes in) Robert says that the street in Partick, Glasgow where he lives was the street in which Donald grew up! (Though his origins were in North Uist, Donald was raised in Glasgow.)
