    Ashley MacIsaac & Mary Jane Lamond perform Sleepy Maggie with Symphony Nova Scotia at the Rebecca Cohn in Halifax, NS on Sunday March 31st, 2019.

    This was actually shot by Donna on her iPhone, but the fact that she recorded it at all let alone kept the phone in landscape mode and actually recorded the entire song once started without bouncing around means she's been listening to me and some of it is actually sinking in.

    For her first ever video though..... This is pretty damn good so I thought Id share.... Enjoy! :)

    Margaret Maclean (Mairead Bean Ruairi Iagain Ruairi) of Boisdale, Cape Breton County is a treasure, and a patient and generous teacher.

    GAELIC (Gàidhlig -Scottish Gaelic) LYRICS TO MARGARET'S SONG per

    Iù ò ra hiù ò
    O hì o hì ò
    Iù ò ra hiù ò

    Gura mise tha fo mhulad
    Air an tullaich ud shuas

    Cha dìrich mi bruach
    Cha siubhal mi buan

    Cha dean mi ceum còmhnard
    a' Dhòmhnach na Luain

    'S tric mo shùil air a' rubha
    Far a' bhruaich ud shuas

    Cha n-eil bàt' a thig o 'n rubha
    Nach dubhaich ri m'ghruaidh

    Na bàt' a thig o 'n chaolas
    Nach caochail mi snuadh

    Cha chaidil mi idir
    Gus an tig na bheil bhuam

    Cha n-eil cùmha mo leannain
    A th'air m'aire an ceart uair

    Ach cùmha nam bràithrean
    Cùl fàinneach nan dual

    Turas Dhòmhnaill 's Ailein
    Chuir an tainead 'nam gruaidh

    Tha do phreasain 'nam chiste
    Rìgh bu mhisde mi 'ad bhuam

    Tha do bhrògan 'nam chasan
    Nì nach laigh orm fuachd

    Tha do riobaidean sgàrlaid
    A' cuir deàrrsaidh 'nam ghruaidh

    Tha do nèapagain rìomhach
    Gùn shìoda chaol buan

    'S truagh leam dìol do chuim cùmhach
    Bhi fo mhighean nan stuadh

    Agus dìol do chuim chlannaich
    Bhi 's an fheamainn 'ga luadh

    Sung by Margaret Maclean
    Backup vocals: Mary Jane Lamond
    Recorded at Margaret's home in Boisdale, Cape Breton by David Hillier

    MARGARET'S SONG ENGLISH TRANSLATION from

    Iù ò ra hiù ò
    O hì o hì ò
    Iù ò ra hiù ò

    I am sorrowful on yonder hillock.
    I can't climb the embankment, I can't travel with vigour.
    I can't make a steady step on Sunday or Monday.
    I often watch the point from yonder hill.
    No boat clears the point that doesn't darken my countenance.
    No boat comes from the narrows that doesn't change my expression.
    It is not lamenting my sweetheart that is on my mind at present.
    But lamenting my brothers of the ringletted hair.
    I will remain sleepless until I get that which is from me.
    Donald and Allan's journey which has left my cheeks thin.
    Your presents are in my hope chest, Lord I was the worst for wanting them.
    Your lovely kerchief, and gown of fine durable silk.
    Your scarlet ribbons which make my cheeks shine.
    Your shoes on my feet, which keeps them warm.
    The fate of your shapely form, to be joyless under the waves.
    And the fate of your curled tresses, to be fulled in the seaweed

    Sung by Margaret Maclean

    ~Taladh na Beinne Guirme~
    Written by Goiridh Dòmhnallach agus Brian Ó hEadhra


    A dhaoine, bha mi ‘seo bho’n a bhris an là,~ Oh people, I was here since the dawning of the first day
    Sìnte, gu sìtheil ‘na mo shuain,~ Reclining, peacefully in my slumber.
    ‘S an t-sìorrachd, am bòidhchead slàn mar a dheònaich E,~ In eternity, in total beauty as He willed it
    ‘S an nàdur a’ freagairt dha mo dhuan.~And nature suiting & replying to my song

    Fàil ill ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó
    Hiùrabh ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó.

    Air maduinn, dh’fhairich mi ann dealachadh,~ In the morning, I sensed a change
    Mo chaithris is m’ònrachd ‘tighinn gu ceann,~ My watching and my solitude coming to an end.
    Ceòl na tuaighe is nan duanagan,~ The music of the axe and of songs,
    Dh’éisd mi is thog mi fhìn am fonn.~ I listened and I joined in with their chorus.

    Fàil ill ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó
    Hiùrabh ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó.

    Daoine, daoine còire, curanta,~ People, a kind of dauntless people,
    A ghiùlain gach cruadal ‘s càs gu treun~ Who bravely endured every hardship & distress.
    Dualchas, dualchas beairteach, briagha, beò,~ A culture, a rich, beautiful, living culture
    Mar chàirdean, gu’n d’thug iad orm seinn. ~ As friends, they caused me to sing.

    Fàil ill ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó
    Hiùrabh ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó.

    Ach thàinig, thàinig oirnn an darna là,~ But a great change overtook us.
    Is chunnaic mi mo dhaltan a’ sìoladh às,~ And I saw my foster-children dying out
    ‘S gann gu’n cluinn mi an cànan ceòlmhór, blasda, binn,~ Rarely do I hear the melodious, sweet language
    Cànan coimheach, cruaidh a’ tighinn ‘na h-àit’.~ There's a foreign, hard-sounding language in it's stead.

    Fàil ill ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó
    Hiùrabh ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó.

    Tha sgleò, tha sgleò air tighinn air an àite seo,~ A pall has come upon this place,
    Is sàmhchair bho’n a dh’fhalbh móran,~ And silence, since so many have departed.
    ‘Nam chaithris air mo chloinn ‘nan cadal buan,~ I am wakeful, and watchful over my children in their eternal slumber.
    Fanaidh mi ‘gan tàladh ann le’m òran.~ I will remain, lullabying them with my song.

    Fàil ill ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó
    Hiùrabh ó ‘s na hó ro éileadh o ro
    Fàil ill é ‘s na hó ro éileadh ó.
