Sorry, I have no idea, but I think I need to buy that CD.

It reminds me of ‘Fionnghuala’, recorded by The Bothy Band, but it’s a different song – with a similar melody and sung in a similar style.

Re: Song ID?

I think the tune is a version of Mhórag’s na horo Gheallaidh recorded by Clannad on the album Fuaim.

Dolores Keane and John Faulkner recorded it : https://youtu.be/b6eil0vnSvg

I’m sure I have a recording of a Scottish band doing the Gaelic part but can’t remember who.

Re: Song ID?

This is included in this album:https://thesession.org/recordings/461 I believe it is simply listed as ´Horo´.
I´ve the album on one or another hard drive, so will have to check this. Part of the English recalls the Northumbrian ´Dance to your Daddy´.

Dolores Keane recorded that song.

That’s another song. Incidentally, the same vocal group recorded that one as well:

Thanks to bagpie - the one with Dolores Keane & John Faulkner sounds more or less like the voices I have in mind (although I don’t remember the reel). Maybe the duo recorded just the song on some other album.
