Beschrijving

Old and still popular folk song, also known as Hebridean fairy's love lilt.


The music is arranged here for alto or baritone voice and guitar, and I have given the melody to the guitar at one point, allowing the voice to provide a counter melody.

(The song can also be sung by a man since the legend is that it was a male fairy who fell in love with a young lady)

The original Gaelic words are anonymous (traditional)

The wording in Lowlands Scots is by James Hogg (from his Ettrick Shepherd).

The video is a live performance by David W Solomons (using the James Hogg Lowland Scots version of the words).
