Joy Await Thee

My husband has been learning to play the bouzouki lately and yesterday, while I made a pie, he joined me in making what we felt was very good music! The song we are currently working on is performed below in Gaelic by the excellent Scottish band Capercallie. It is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful Scottish ballads of all time. Enjoy!

What is your favorite Celtic song?

Didn't you love it when they panned the crowd and they were singing along. What a poigneant, beautiful song. I love it when you sing this.

Poignant, I meant :-)
