Re: Sabhal Iain IC Uisdean

This is used as the air to a puirt-a-beul called "Sabhal Iain ‘ic Uisdean" (John MacEwan’s Barn) or "Ruidhle nam Pog" (The Kissing Reel).

Joyful was I last year in John McEwan’s barn.
Joyful was I last year in Iain son of Hugh’s barn.
When the kissing reel began there was great hilarity;
The stomping of boots could be heard in Castletown.
A kiss for Calum from the headland, a kiss for every man.
A kiss for Calum from the headland, and for the man from Doune Point.

In dance bands it’s often called "MacEwan’s Barn" and used for a Highland Schottische.
