Fhir a' Bhàta (The Boatman)

musician/member name:
Duration: 00:02:05
This is a lovely little Scottish melody from the late 19th Century. My arrangement. Played on a custom Aeolus Dulcimer ( ) Sometimes spelled "Fear a' Bhta" or "Fhear a' Bhta" (A motorcycle decided to play a duet with me at the very end LOL).

Lovely arrangement and playing, Guy. This tune has been a favorite of mine for years - ever since my sister played an arrangement by the Irish band Pale, Stout and Amber for me. I learned this on the mandolin after hearing their arrangement (key of F or Dm?) - but hadn't thought of arranging it for the dulcimer. Thanks so much! The Gaelic lyrics are beautiful (and the English lyrics, too3.gif )
