Subject: RE: Scottish lullabies, please
Aaaargh, I know that "Hush Hush"one. I think the Poozies/Sileas sing it, but I'm not sure. Either it's them or it's just a friend of mine who sings it. I'll ask him when I see him. Another grim but very beautiful one is on Catherine-Ann MacPhee's "Canan Nan Gailheal"called "An Nighean Nan Geng Taladh" which is about a dead mother coming back as a ghost because their step-parents beat her children. Must be very reassuring if you're a kid.*G* The album has only the one lullaby but since it is very beautiful I though I'd mention it anyway. Sophie
