An Ribhinn Donn (song air)

I learned this beautiful melody from the singing of Karen Matheson on Capercaillie’s early recording. The lyrics and the translation can be found here: http://www.capercaillie.co.uk/discography/lyrics/crosswinds/

It’s rather short, so you might like playing it as an introduction to a sets of reels or jigs. It sounds nice in Ador too.
