about

The splendid Scottish folksinger Karine Polwart tweeted one day about witnessing a girl being told not to climb a tree because she was in a very nice skirt. Or maybe just in a nice skirt, it was some time ago, and either way, this little song fell happily out and has been sung a handful of times since.

There is a particularly British distinction, I think, betweem a skirt, a nice skirt, and a very nice skirt. And you can climb trees in any of them, so there.

Yes, I know the picture's a bit random. This is something of a test upload to get past some tech glitches. If you can see this, and hear the song, it's worked! In which case I'll see about uploading the lyrics and a more pertinent image later, OK? :-)
