Suo Gan

Nora Garver with Immigrant's Daughter


A pre-Christian Welsh Lullaby first published in 1794, "Suo" means to hum softly.  "Gan" means song.  It is also often played in the highland bagpipe repertoire as an air.  I had heard it played by pipe bands at various highland games, so I framed the tune with a fiddle solo played in a Scottish style that imitates the droning of the bagpipes.  I also wrote the melodic harmony.  Ann Borden arranged the harp accompaniment.  This tune is the last track on "The Winter Moon" by Immigrant's Daughter.
