Ruairidh McDonald -  Fly Lady Fly Single

FLY LADY FLY, written by Fiona Kennedy and Nils Elders, was inspired by "Lady", the record-breaking osprey from The Loch of the Lowes in Perthshire, Scotland.

Lady is believed, at the age of 27, to be the oldest breeding osprey in the UK and every year makes the 6000 mile migration to West Africa and back. The song is a catchy, vibrant and upbeat mix of pure pop, tribal Celtic and African chant.
