Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Marie's Wedding and Farewell
Just a remark - the name Mhairi is Gaelic (however you spell it); in Scotland it is normally pronounced "Varrie", in Ireland "Moira". Since the tune is from the Scottish tradition, the former should prevail, but either is preferable to Marie, which in Scotland refers to a kind of biscuit produced by Patersons of Edinburgh (and very nice they are too!).
