My inspiration for tartan stems from my connection with Scotland and my Ramsay Clan heritage. The Ramsay Clan has a centuries old history and I am so proud of my family’s heritage and the history that connects us. My Grandmother, Patricia Gogolinski who was a Ramsay before marriage, was a professional singer who made a name for herself at Aberdeen’s Tivoli Theatre. As a young woman she auditioned for the famous Jack Milroy Show, where she was hired as a singer. She went under the stage name of Pat Ramsay, toured the world and sang for the troops during the war. She performed in Canada, America, former Soviet Union, Finland and England. In London she performed for troops as part of ENSA, the organisation which provided entertainment for servicemen and women. Pat claimed to fame when she sang with legendary vocalist and civil rights pioneer Paul Robeson, while he was on the visit to Aberdeen. In 1950 she returned to Aberdeen, finished university and turned her hand to teaching. In between times she met Henry (my Polish grandfather), a Polish soldier. They married and had three children, one of which is my Father, who received the Paul Ramsay name to continue the tradition and history.
