Music on My Mind

Julie Fowlis (with Mary Chapin Carpenter), "‘A’ phiuthrag ’sa phiuthar’". ‘A’ phiuthrag ’sa phiuthar’ is Scots Gaelic for "O sister, dear sister". It tells the story of two sisters, one of whom is stolen away by fairies; the other searches for her -- but in vain. That's a Scottish tale for you; all the best songs in Gaelic are sad ones. And this is a lovely animation style for it.
