Song of the Fairies

The Song of the Fairies, Port na pBucai in Irish, is a song that comes from the Blasket Islands, off County Kerry, in the west of Ireland. It is considered one of the finest song/airs in the tradition. It tells the story of a young woman, taken away by the the Sidhe, the fairies. Some say the tune was heard on the wind, others that it comes from the singing of the whales, perhaps both are true.

I was honoured to have my playing of Port na pBucai, chosen as the music for this video of the sacred site Arbor Low, in the Peak District of England.

The video is made by All About Heaven a vast website and one of the best spiritual resources on the net. Enjoy!
