Far away and o'er the moor,
Morar waits for a boat that saileth,
Far away down Lowland way,
I dream the dream I learned, lad,

By the light o' the peat-fire flame,
Light for love, for lilt for laughter
By the light o' the peat-fire flame
The light the hill-folk yearn for.

Far away, down Low way,
Grim's the toil, with a tune or dream, lad,
All you need's a creel and love,
For the dream the heart can weave, lad


Far away the tramp and tread
Tune and laughter of all the heroes,
Pulls me onward o'er the trail
Of the dream my heart may weave, lad

Beautiful tune. nice arrangement and use of exotic percussive instruments

Love it and all the right instrumentation ... good job

Enjoyable and fresh sounding bed of music. Nice work.

The artist digs into the archives for a traditional Celtic folk song, dusts it off, and makes it gleam with hammered dulcimer, flutes, pennywhistle and an old world charm. An engaging vocal brings this folk song to life and the light the hill folk yearn for. Ethereal, magical, romantic. A major victory in a minor key.

Nice laid-back Celtic arrangement. The instrumentation style reminds me of Enya. I like the vocal and flute melodies, some catchy melody lines. The vocal part is sensitively sung. A nice blend of traditional instruments and synth layers. Very clear and top quality recording, especially the vocal. An exquisite ending to the song.

brings to mind times of old and great cinematic accomplishments in Scotland, England, castles, fair maidens and wandering minstrels players! Love it. really transports to another time and place.
