Anne Martin – Bawdy Gaelic song from ‘An Leabhar Liath’ with Ian MacPherson, Peter Mackay and Ingrid Henderson

Folksinger Anne Martin reveals the risqué references in Gaelic Song that have been lost over time. She takes us on a romp through the titillating, bawdy and sometimes downright filthy Scottish Gaelic songs. During the 19th and early 20th centuries,  even the most celebrated Gaelic poets wrote verse that was exuberantly and excessively rude and there is an oral tradition of obscene and euphemistic songs. Anne teases out the suggestive references taking us from the Isle of Skye through the rabble-rousing ceilidh house to the work of Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns. ‘An Leabhar Liath ~ the Light Blue Book : 500 years of Gaelic Love and Transgressive verse’ was published in late 2016 by Luath Press and collated by Peter MacKay and Iain MacPherson, both with strong Skye connections.

ÒRAIN DRABASTA ÀS AN LEABHAR LIATH

Bidh an seinneadair Anna Mhàrtainn a’ taisbeanadh nan
òran drabasta Gàidhlig a chailleadh thar nan linntean. Bidh i gar stiùireadh tro òrain a tha druiseach is feòlmhor agus uaireannan dìreach mì-mhodhail!
Anns an 19mh linn agus tràth san 20mh, bhiodh na bàird Ghàidhlig a bu chliùitiche fiù ‘s a’ sgrìobhadh rannan a bha
uabhasach mì-modhail agus tha òrain dhrabasta rim faicinn
anns an dualchas gu cinnteach. Bidh Anna a’ taisbeanadh
