Thread Name: All for Mary's Wedding - Irish tune?
Subject: RE: All for Mary's Wedding - Irish tune

I remember Bill Aitken, one of the members of "Killiecrankie" saying that he hated "Mairi's Wedding". As a youngster in Scotland it's the one song they always had to sing in school when it was time for "folk culture" - "All right now children ... Mairi's Wedding ... one ... two ..."
Furthermore, said Bill, "I'm from Glasgow, and I assure you, in Glasgow ... NOBODY steps GAILY!"
