Totally Off the Normal Topic: Celtic Music: Skye Boat Song

This little piece is called Skye Boat Song. It's a traditional tune and commemorates Charles Edward Stuart's escape after the battle of Culloden. I was thinking of my Grandmother this morning for some reason, and this was her favorite tune. She was born n in Scotland and this piece alwways reminded her of home.

I have some scenes from the Isle of Skye I culled from the internet, and played the piece with more of a slow Irish air interpretation, since I used an Irish Tin Whistle, but here it is......the Skye Boat Song.

I had no idea you were a Celtic music fan. Nice job.

I've been trying to learn the fife for a couple of years, but I don't have much inspiration.
