Silver Sands - Sugar Beets & Candy Rocks

Silver Sands - Sugar Beets & Candy Rocks

1st song of the Sugar Beets & Candy Rocks Concert at the Beacon 6th Feb 2015.

Following the tradition of songs about leaving Scotland, this song reflects the emotional and physical distance which separates people when they leave to find fortune. Many Scots made ardous journeys across the seas for the lure of White Gold from sugar plantations in West Indies. However the sweetness of the sugar produced and sold had a bitter cost for those sold into slavery and labour in the plantations.
