Murdo Took The Stoup

This is a very deceptive tune. It doesn’t look much on paper but it’s a beauty. I picked it up from the new album by Breabach. It’s a puirt a’ beul that they picked up from the famous gaelic singer Kenna Campbell who told them as far as she knew there was no written record of the tune. She picked it up from her auntie Johan here in the village I live in in Skye. I got the words from Kennas daughter Mary Ann Kennedy.

Air an fhèill a - muigh, o - hao,
air an fhèill a - staigh, o - hò,
Air an fhèill a - muigh, o - hao,
rinn na cean - naich - ean an t - òl.

Air an tula - chan ud shìos,
air an tula - chan ud shuas,
Air an tula - chan ud shìos,
a ghabh Mur - chadh a’ stòp.
