TUNE Struileag - Blasad nan Deur (Tasting Tears)
Lead vocal Kathleen MacInnes, Lyrics Iain S MacPherson
This is an impassioned song by a Canadian Gael about his experiences in the old country. 'Seeking the country I belonged to at first/I won’t stop without tasting the tears'. It's an affecting, emotional poem, but not an idealistic or sentimental one.
