Mairi's Wedding

Mairis Wedding

Lyrics

Step it gaily, off we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and off we go
All for Mairi's wedding.

Over hillways up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the sheiling through the town
All for sake of Mairi.

Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel
That's the toast for Mairi.

Cheeks as bright as rowans are
Brighter far than any star,
Fairest o' them all by far
Is my darlin' Mairi.

Tackács Quartet TED talk

” One of the really fun things about playing string quartets is how exactly do we find this balance between the individual space we need, individual ideas, in what essentially is a very intensive group activity”.                          Edward Dusinberre, first violinist Tackás Quartet One […]
