Triona Ni Dhomhnaill Song: When I Was A Fair Maid, Claudine Langille

i learned this song last night. the triona version has been a favorite for quite sometime.
traditionally this is a sailor song sung by men. recently(last 40 years) it has been popular with female voices.

Claudine Langille plays it on a four string banjo like i do.

the Triona Ni Dhomhnaill version is much better, but alas there is no you tube version of it yet. only this.

a short mp3 is here.
