Laverock: Scots for lark.
The skylark, symbol of dawn and happiness, sings on the wing as it rises into the morning sky. And as it soars and plummets, the laverock becomes, symbolically, a messenger between heaven and earth.
Laverock: a Scots folk group.
They sing songs by Robert Burns, Scotland’s universally loved poet, inventing new airs to some of his less familiar verses. Above all, they draw inspiration from Burns’ insight into the unfairness of society, his compassion for the simple man and woman, and his love of life – and of women. All conveyed through the special gift of the Mither Tongue.
