A new Scottish folk song I just released as an online digital single. I wrote this song about my auntie Margaret who emigrated to Canada in the 1950's

I made a YouTube video with the lyrics and some footage of Macduff taken in November 2020. I also used some old family photos to make it a little more powerful.

If you like my music here's some little things you can do if you'd like to help me create more.

1.Please Subscribe to my YouTube channel. Any likes or comments are a help to me and the more of my videos you watch the better YouTube will help me. Tell me someone is listening :-)

From my YouTube stats I know that 85% of my views are from unsubscribed people, and most of my audience are males over 65+. It's 100% free to Subscribe to my YouTube channel and if you click the bell icon on the bottom right in the YouTube browser screen it means YouTube will send you a notification when I upload but only if you have allowed notifications from YouTube on your device. Eventually I can apply to get a share of ad revenue from YouTube via the ads it puts on my videos sometimes. But first, I need 4000 hours of watch time in the last 12 months before qualifying. Today I have 3879! So nearly there...

  1. Buy Me A Coffee on this site. :-)

  2. Like my Facebook Pages. It's a nice way to encourage me to do more on facebook. I don't find so much engagement on that platform for my music. Shares, likes and comments are a great help.

    Social media platforms like engagement and I'll try and engage with you where I can.

  3. Become a Patreon member.

    I have a new Patreon page. Patreon is a great idea for artists and creative people to get crowd funding and moral support from a reliable private members club. Knowing there's some income coming in helps me buy new equipment to make better projects and reduce the worry of money a little. I also offer you some treats in return for your support. Starting from £3 a month, plus VAT. You can also ask me anything and give me input or suggest ideas for treats or new material. I also offer to write a piece of music for members at a higher tiered level. ▶ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CharlieAbel

  4. Visit my websites, buy a CD or download. There's a small library of small sheet music that's free to download. Commenting on relevant pages in the site or in the blog help my search results online.

  5. Share my music anywhere you can. Especially with YouTube or even Facebook.

  6. It would be great if you can ask your favourite radio station to play a request of some of my original compositions, songs or covers.
