NATIONAL TARTAN DAY IS HERE AT LAST!
Releasing the single TODAY on National Tartan Day marks history in a way. April 6th 1320 marks the day when the Declaration of Arbroath came to pass. It was sought to assert Scotland’s position as an independent kingdom. Sir James Douglas was one of the chief commanders during the Wars of Scottish Independence. The Douglas, the one whom our story is told, was Robert the Bruce’s right hand man. Pledged himself to The Bruce for life if he could only have his name returned to him. This is their story in song by Tuatha Dea.
The Epic Celtic Rock Ballad “The Black Douglas” (aka Bravehearts) celebrates one of Scotland’s greatest heroes “Good Sir James Douglas” , known to his enemies as “The Black Douglas” and referenced as the most feared Knight in Scottish history! His story is the stuff of legend and more can be found on King Robert the Bruce’s right hand at the click of a mouse!
This single from Tuatha Dea’s forthcoming NEW album, is the 2nd to be produced by Grammy nominated Sound Biscuit Studios and mastered by Grammy winning Paul Blakemore and is being released for airplay on National Tartan Day to commemorate Scotland’s Declaration of Independence and of course “Good Sir James”.
