S’Toigh Leam Fhin Buntata S’Im

A puirt a beul (mouth music) tune heard on Julie Fowlis’ album "cuilidh". This setting was transcribed by Nigel Gatherer in his Tune of the Week (book 3) series. He says the title translates as "I am fond of potatoes and butter."

In an interview about puirt a beul, Julie adds: "There might be a song about a man who likes three things in life, and three things only; and they might be, potatoes, and butter, and women."

This has many relatives - "Buttered Peas " "Highland Wedding" " Stumpie" etc.
