Thread Name: Wedding Waltz Recommendations?
Subject: RE: Wedding Waltz Reccommendations?
My wife and I had Fanny Powers, by Turlogh O'Carolin, it is a wonderful wedding tune, written for David Powers' daughter, and the Gaelic words translated, from memory...
I'll not quit this world till with joy and with pride
I will dance at the wedding where you shine as the bride
and cursed be the suitor a dowery demands of
fair Fanny the daughter of David.
It is on a number of albums, a chieftan album, one of the Derrik Bell harp albums and a bunch of others... Geeze if ya want a quartette I'll come and play it on the Uilleann Pipes for ye.
PS Enjoy the first day of the best days of your life.
