GUEST,Bruce O BS: Celtic melancholy (84* d) RE: BS: Celtic melancholy 08 Mar 01

We've had several discussion here on "Wild Mountain Thyme" and "Braes o' Balquither". Origins seem to be a little earlier the 1750 in Scotland, when the original tune wa first published. I put Jack Campin's early text here, and I think we also have Robert Tannahill's version, which the McPeake's in Ireland revised. Celtic origin it ain't.
