The poem's words are included in some of the comments.

He's got a partial podcast with the Scottish Poetry library here: http://www.readingroom.spl.org.uk/podcasts/scott.htm (it unfortunately breaks of half-way through) and his tour dates here: http://www.mikescottwaterboys.com/. I love it that you have a Peer Gynt Hall in Bergen - he will be performing there. What's he done? Set Yeats poems to music. I haven't heard it yet myself but you can get a feel of what the project might be like from his setting of The Stolen Child here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg-oJKYIinQ&noredirect=1, from one of my favourite albums of the 80s, Fisherman's Blues. If you don't know him he's a very interesting and original talent from one of my favourite places in the world - Edinburgh.
