Baidin Fheldhlimidh


"Phelim's boat will go sailing to Gabhla,

Phelim's wee boat with Phelim along..."

This song is about a little boat that went to sea, and neither the boat nor its owner returned. "The tiny boat, the lively boat, the pretty boat, the boat of Phelim, / The honest boat, the willing boat, the boat of Phelim, with Phelim along." The sheet music includes the original Gaelic words and an accurate, singable English translation, as well as the melody, chord symbols, and arrangement for the lever or pedal harp. It is 4 pages, 8½" x 11" with an intricate harp illustration by Celtic artist Elly Fithian. Easy to intermediate.
