Sun Still Rises and Sets in the Shetland Islands!!
Sheep Tossing Outlawed in Shetland Islands!
Baby Born With Silver Guitar in His Hand!
By Dee Major
A Shetland Isles' sunset... Its beauty certainly inspired the graceful guitar playing of its own shining star, Ian Bairnson. On the 3rd day of August, 1953, the village of Levenwick had no idea it had given birth to one who would become the most influential Shetlander in Rock history. Die hard Pilot fans might guess that Edinburgh was where it all started. Yet, the quiet tranquillity of this tiny village is probably more deserving of the credit for Ian taking to the guitar.
