Jock’s Jocks and Joe Aitken

About Jock’s Jocks and Joe Aitken

For over 50 years, the great bothy balladeer Jock Duncan’s other vocation was interviewing North-East Scotland’s Great War veterans, faithfully transcribing their Doric dialects on an old manual typewriter. Published in 2019, the resulting book was edited by piper and professor Gary West, who features here in his own eponymous musical play, inspired by these testimonies, alongside Scott Gardiner, Chris Wright and son, Charlie West. As a tradition-bearer, Duncan has few peers, but among that select company is fellow Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame inductee, Joe Aitken, who won a record sixth Bothy Ballad Champion of Champions title in 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jock’s Jocks and Joe Aitken are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
