Thread Name: Help: Fairy Love Song
Subject: RE: Help: Fairy Love Song
The lowland (english words) were written by James Hogg the Etrick shepherd. The words "Brooing bracken" should actualy read "Pu'ing bracken" which once again is the old Scotch for pulling bracken. The Gaelic title for the song is, as mentioned before somewhere "Tha Mi Sgith". The old celtic air and words were collected by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser
