Emerald walks you through the melody and bowing of the first (A) part of “The Kerry Polka” in this video.
|Mairi’s Wedding, Part 1|
The second Celtic tune you’ll learn is a popular Scottish song, “Mairi’s Wedding.” Emerald starts by showing you how to sing the melody, so you get it in your head, and then she walks you through the melody of the first part “Mairi’s Wedding” on the fiddle.
“Mairi’s Wedding” Lyrics
Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm in arm and row on row
All for Mairi’s wedding
