Well-known Lewis singer 'Tonkan' (MacDonald?) ((sorry- don't know his 'real' name - this is just a nickname - Morag)), after a quick joke about a Skye lady who fancied him, sings first a well-known Skye song 'Fàilte Rubha Bhatairnis' (Welcome to the Waternish Peninsula), accompanying himself on the accordion. The song, composed by a war-time sailor or soldier, it seems, praises the Isle of Skye and his girlfriend there, Mary.

His second song, sung in his easy style, is 'Chì mi'n Tìr san robh mi nam Bhalach' (I can see the Land where I was a Boy), written by a man from Harris, who praises various locations on that island.
