One of the most easily recognised figures on the Scottish scene, Ronnie Browne was one half of The Corries until the untimely death of his musical partner, Roy Williamson, in 1990. He is also a gifted artist, a portraitist of distinction, who has received both critical and commercial success from childhood to the present day. He met his wife, Pat, when they both attended Boroughmuir High School in Edinburgh and formed the most important and enduring partnership of his life, together having three children and four grandchildren. In That Guy Fae The Corries, Ronnie Browne writes revealingly of his childhood in pre-War Edinburgh, of The Corrie Folk Trio with Paddy Bell, and The Corries throughout their existence, of the many famous musical personalities he has rubbed shoulders with through the decades, of family, travel and his life as an artist.
Ronnie Browne was born in Edinburgh in 1937 and has lived in or near the city all through his life. Best known as a folk singer, especially as one half of The Corries, he is also an accomplished portraitist. In these roles he has travelled the world and is a popular and unmistakable figure. Closely associated with Scotland's anthem, Flower of Scotland, he has led the singing at many international sporting events and gatherings. Ronnie Browne has made many musical albums not only with The Corries but also in his own right. More information and downloads are available at: www.corries.com
