Fear a Bhois Fada Gun Phosaidh/The Goatheard and the Shepherd

Fear a Bhois Fada Gun Phosaidh
This set is part of the following collections:


Fear a Bhois Fada Gun Phosaidh is a Puirt-a-Beul (mouth music) piece which I learned from a recording of the group Tannas. The title translates as "The Man Late in Marrying".

The Goatherd and the Shepherd - Buachill nan Gobhar a's Buachill nan Caorach in Gaelic - is a 4-part pipe tune from The Gesto Collection (1895). I have reduced it to a nice 2-part jig.
