Choir in Euros track

DUMFRIES Community Choir feature in a new unofficial anthem for the Scotland National Team ahead of this month’s European Football Championships.

The Hunter and McMustard and Mellow Party version of ‘Go on Yourself’ featuring Dumfries Community Choir is being released today on Button Up Records.

It features musicians from Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5, The Creative Martyrs, The Laurette’s, Gleadhraic and Dumfries Community Choir.

And the artists hope the Tartan Army will get right behind the track as Scotland prepare to head to Germany for the championships.

The song starts as a ballad and ends with a high-octane ceilidh, the lyrics written by John McMustard and the video was filmed at Hampden Scottish Football Museum.

Artists have come together from all corners of Scotland including Carnoustie, Kirkcudbright, Kilwinnning, Pitlochry, Falkirk, Dumfries, Lochmaben, Annan, Lanark, Dennistoun, Gourock and Shawlands in Glasgow.

Maureen Farrell has been a member Dumfries Community Choir for the last 13 years.

She said: “What I love about this song is how upbeat it makes you feel, which won’t only make the fans feel good, but hopefully our talented Scotland team will feel how much we believe in them.”

Director of music at the choir Gary Cameron added: “We are honoured to be collaborating with Hunter and McMustard on this rousing anthem.

“There has been mutual love between Dumfries Community Choir and Colonel Mustard (John McMustard) for a while now. This is a perfect way to showcase our collective talents.”
