Jessica Comeau- Skye Boat Song, or Outlander Theme Song

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:59

This Scottish air, popularly known as "Skye Boat Song," has long been a favorite of mine. The lyrics speak of Bonnie Prince Charlie fleeing from the Jacobites along with Flora MacDonald. I have fond memories of singing this song with several other ladies at a Scottish sing led by the fine singer and storyteller Flora MacDonald Gammon, who was named after the woman who had aided Prince Charlie. You might also recognize this melody as the theme song for the "Outlander" television series, which adapts Robert Louis Stevenson's lyrics for "Sing Me a Song of Lad that is Gone" (Key of D, D-A-D tuning)
