    “Loreena McKennitt - Elemental - 6. Kellswater” [Only 49,782 Views?]

    YouTube

    "Here's a health to you bonny Kellswater
    Where you get all the pleasures of life
    Where you get all the fishing and fowling
    And a bonny wee lass for your wife.

    Oh it's down where yon waters run muddy
    I'm afraid they will never run clear
    And it's when I begin for to study
    My mind is on him that's not here.

    And it's this one and that one may court him
    But if any one gets him but me
    It's early and late I will curse them
    The parting lovely Willy from me.

    Oh a father he calls on his daughter
    Two choices I'll give unto thee
    Would you rather see Willie's ship a'sailing
    See him hung like a dog on yonder tree.

    Oh father, dear father, I love him
    I can no longer hide it from thee
    Through an acre of fire I would travel
    Along with the lovely Willie to be.

    Oh hard was the heartbreak I'm finding
    She took from her full heart's delight
    May the chains of old Ireland come find them
    And softly their pillows at night.

    Oh yonder there's a ship on the ocean
    And she does not know which way to steer
    From the east and the west she's a'blowing
    She reminds me of the charms of my dear.

    Oh it's yonder my Willie will be coming
    He said he'd be here in the spring
    And it's down by yon green shades I'll meet him
    And among wild roses we'll sing.

    For a gold ring he placed on my finger
    Saying love bear this in your mind
    If ever I sail from old Ireland
    You'll mind I'll not leave you behind.

    Here's a health to you bonny Kellswater
    Where you get all the pleasures of life
    Where you get all the fishing and fowling
    And a bonny wee lass for your wife."

    I wish there were Americans like her, she is a force onto herself. A Canadian treasure. The only person I can think of who comes close to her in vocal purity is Judy Collins and one friend in Israel, Jill Rogoff. Here is one song, by my dear departed friend Ray Scudero, "Through the night" which my wife was given the ok to sing at festivals by Ray himself. The images in this video are Jill's family, Tali, the woman holding the baby is her daughter. Man, that whole video brings back memories of our time with Ray, Jilll and her husband Mike. We played together as a band in Jerusalem at a theater there one REALLY fine night, called ourselves "Pot o' Gold" to a packed house!

    YouTube

    I am probably prejudiced but I think if anything, my wife sings this particular song better than Jill😉 Don't tell Jill I said that🙂

    Ray wrote that song about the bombing in Bosnia but it could be about any war. He was a real treasure, a polymath genius who wrote 600 songs and was also a luthier, he built a guitar for me, one for my son Kevin and a unique dulcimer for my wife Susan.

    I sort of liked that song, but the first two you posted sounded kind of bland to me. I'm not exactly a folk music devotee so maybe I'm not too aware of the social fabric and ethos that underlie the folk scene.

    The few folk songs I own include artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and June Tabor, Paul Simon, and The Full English. I've just started a new job so would be interested in recommendations to add to my library.

    Though I've never heard your wife sing, we agree [the vibrato seemed excessive for a lullaby to me].

    "Found this one, Linda Ronstadt and Emmy Lou on Dolly Parton's TV show from 1976 singing 'I can't help it if I'm still in love with you' The sound quality is outstanding for so long ago." YouTube

    Just found this little gem, the Alaska String band, a family, singing 'Further on'

    Here are the lyrics.

    This song was recorded in a shorter version by the Carter family.

    It was composed by A, P. Carter. I take it back, the Carter family was well known to copyright songs by the hundreds when there was a weak copyright system. A version I found says it was first noted in 1877, just a BIT before the Carters🙂
    For instance, one song I liked, Over the Garden Wall, a really cute song, was 'written' by A. P. Carter. But I found the original in a songbook, a great one BTW, from 1902 and had more verses that the Carter family left out.

    Here is a version by John McCutcheon with vocals by Iris Dement:

    YouTube

    This is from a great album of his ( ALL his albums are great) called "Sprout wings and fly".

    Here is another great song and pre song patter 'This land is your land' by John:

    YouTube

    Here is the inauguration song John was talking about with Pete Seeger and Bruce Springstreen:

    YouTube

    Gad, I got tears watching this one. Pete was a great man. He was 90 years old in this performance.

    BTW, that Alaska band, isn't that girl with the pig tails totally beautiful?

    I wish I had run into them when I lived in Alaska. They could use a mandolin player🙂
