Ruidhlidh

from by Jennifer Licko

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Celebrating a genre that is neither purely Scots Gaelic or Appalachian, Jennifer's new album, 'Sing', represents the evolution of todays crossroads. Jennifer sings Scots Gaelic dance & work songs from the perspective of the music’s adopted home in the Carolinas. Original songs in English that express her own folk music style compliment this new Celtic sound which could only have taken root from a North Carolina native who spent her childhood years Scottish dancing. Producer and instrumentalist Patsy O’Brien approached the song arrangements with the musical traditions of the appalachian region in mind. The songs on SING are the branches that cover many current and past generations of Scottish people and culture in North Carolina.

lyrics

(Scots Gaelic & English Translation)
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan
The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
Air a bhruthaich bhoidhich
On the pretty slope
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan
The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
Air a bhruthaich bhoidhich
On the pretty slope
 
 
Gheibh thu aran agus im
You will get bread and butter
'S caise na banaraich
And the dairy maid's cheese
Gheibh thu aran agus im
You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bhò ann
And get cow's milk there
Gheibh thu aran agus im
You will get bread and butter
'S caise na banaraich
And the dairy maid's cheese
Gheibh thu aran agus im
You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bhò ann
And get cow's milk there
 
 
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan
The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
Air a bhruthaich bhoidhich
On the pretty slope
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan
The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha
The black cocks will reel
Air a bhruthaich bhoidhich
On the pretty slope
 
 
Ma phosas Annag an diugh
If Ann marries today
Posaidh gach uile te
All the women will marry
Ma phosas Annag an diugh
If Ann marries today
Sgaradh air an t-seana bhean
Curses on the old wife
Ma phosas Annag an diugh
If Ann marries today
Posaidh gach uile te
All the women will marry
Ma phosas Annag an diugh
If Ann marries today
Sgaradh air an t-seana bhean
Curses on the old wife
