Seallaibh Curraigh Eòghainn (lyrics)

This song is a strathspey but Kathleen sings it here as a strathspey followed by aversion in reel time. The song is a puirt a beul which is a traditional form of songpopular in Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton. It is dance music sung in Gaelicand sometimes referred to as “mouth music”.
