HAMPDEN PARK, BAGPIPES, DRUMS AND LEGENDS ©
by Robbie Kennedy Bennett


At Hampden Park as the bagpipes play,
The drums did beat this late afternoon
On a bright September day.

The atmosphere was exciting,
Like soldiers armed and ready for fighting.
I looked down on the pitch so green..

When observing this photograph I had taken at Hampden Park, I noticed the deepest blue St Andrews Saltire flag furthest right, was from The Kingdom of Fife.

Scotland 18 England 12
25 February 2006


Tartan kilts swirled as they played,
The drums beat loud and the pipers' parade.
We stood as we watched; a few yards did they pass,
Their tune through the tunnel when leaving the grass.
Did echo around ten times of the sound,
Stimulating our hearts as they marched from the ground.

AMY MACDONALD CALLED ...“C'MON SCOTLAND” © Robbie Kennedy Bennett

Flags about were flying
in many a man a heart is crying
when Amy Macdonald called, ...“c'mon Scotland”

at the end of singing o the flower
she rasied spirits from tall to tower
then Amy Macdonald called, ...“c'mon Scotland”

Quote from Amy Macdonald's Biography on her official site;

“I’ve been asked loads of times to sing for the Scotland team,” says Macdonald. “I did the whole campaign for the European qualifiers. It’s an amazing feeling, so emotional, but I never get nervous. There are 50,000 people singing and you are leading them, literally covered in goose bumps. It’s an honour.”


Quote from RKB;
Well done to Amy with her performance of Flower of Scotland, supported by the Tartan Army. A must see for Scotland supporters or anyone wishing to see one of the best versions of singing a National Anthem.
