Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Peg (from The Bothy Band)
Subject: Song name and lyrics wanted
This song was recorded by the Bothy Band and features vocals by a young Triona Ni Dhomhnaill. A video of it was posted on the Facebook website by Matt Molloy, and I've posted it to my Facebook site as well. Triona has a lovely voice, but I'm unable to make out all the words, and I'm not even sure what the name of the piece is. The original post by Matt has this designation: "Dailymotion - musique celtique Bothy Band(1976) - Pretty Peg Craig's Pipes - une vidéo Musique." He originally posted it on a website called "DailyMotion" which I was not familiar with. It can be found there. The song is sung by a young woman trying to arrange for her lover to visit her bed without her parents knowledge, and explaining that he can climb a ladder to reach her window. It has nonsense-word phrases interspersed throughout. If anyone can locate the song and help me out with it's name and the lyrics, it would be much appreciated. Let me know if you need more information in order to view the video link.
