The Poems: Millennium Blues
Seven of the poems in Millennium Blues (Hammerfield Publishing, 1999) were owersett into Doric from Gaelic Songs from the Eastern Highlands on Upper Deeside, and were dedicated to the poet’s aunt, Nancy Macintosh, who was born at Corriemulzie, Glen Ey. Much of the vanishing Gaelic material was collected in that region in the 1930s by Frances Diack. During this time, Sheena was gathering material for her M.Litt research study into Doric on Upper Deeside.
