Story

From the CD "An Bóithrín."

 

The first tune is an air originating in the late 17th or early 18th century. Robert Burns published a two verse poem by the same name but it appears to be snippets of a longer song or poem and there’s no indication that it’s related to this tune. However, sometimes this tune is used as the melody for the song "Carron Water". There is a verse in "Carron Water" that shares a few lines with what Burn’s published. The second tune is a Highland reel (thankfully on the slow side) that I learned from Tony Cuffe sometime in the late 80s. There are several regional variations of the tune. This one is the one that I like the most.
