Filming at the Fergus Grand Theatre


I first met David Leask at the Fergus Grand Theatre while they were busy recording the remaining tracks for the song. We filmed with members of Grand Celtic and the Fergus Pipe Band.


Here is the Behind the Scenes video for David Leask's Tartan Kiss of Fergus.

David Leask Tartan Kiss of Fergus Song Lyrics

Song written & performed by David Leask


Lyrics

It’s the pipes and drums with their rattle and hum

It’s the young lads and lassies up dancing

The roars and cheers surrounding the field

As the women and men take their chances

Tossing the cabers and hammers up high

While every thread of the kilt keeps on swinging

In the sun or the mud, feel your ancestors’ blood stirring


Fergus, Fergus, a place in your heart called home

Fergus, Fergus, something that’s born in the bone

It’s the reason we’re here and come back every year

For the tartan kiss of Fergus


It’s John Allan Cameron’s Lord Of The Dance

It’s the fiddlers reeling & jigging

The plaid, the parade, the memories made

Side by side when we’re singing

Go Lassie Go & Yon Bonnie Banks

And we’ll all be in Scotland afore ye

It’s a gatherin’ o’ clans all under one flag in Fergus


Fergus, Fergus, a place in your heart called home

Fergus, Fergus, something that’s born in the bone

It’s the reason we’re here and come back every year

For the tartan kiss of Fergus


So let’s raise a glass high to a big-hearted town,

With the best volunteers on the planet

And to the families before us, all part of the story of Fergus


Fergus, Fergus, a place in your heart called home

Fergus, Fergus, something that’s born in the bone

Fergus, Fergus, a place in your heart called home

Fergus, Fergus, something that’s born in the bone

It’s the reason we’re here and come back every year

For the tartan kiss, the tartan kiss of Fergus


Filming at the Brew House on the Grand

We filmed the live performance of Tartan Kiss at the Brew House on the Grand along the Grand River in Fergus. We were joined by a small audience of festival board members, friends and volunteers.


It was a great shoot and we were thrilled to work with David Leask and be part of this incredible music video or the Fergus Scottish Festival.
