I love this old Scottish song about a lad who wishes he was rich enough to treat his lass as she deserves. It is part of a whole Scottish program I can do for your group with songs, stories, jokes, and poems.

I love this old Scottish song about a lad who wishes he was rich enough to treat his lass as she deserves. It’s called “Gin I Were a Baron’s Heir.” Gin is a Scotts word that means “if.”

A poem inpsired by true events in Scotland.

A ripped-from-the-headlines poem about Scotland. Yes, this is all true.

Danny Boy. Maybe the best known Irish song.

O Danny Boy. Maybe the best-known Irish song. Some pubs won’t let it be sung because everybody starts crying.

This song is about as authentically Irish as you can get, a hymn is translated from an eighth century (or older) poem by Irish saint.

This is about as authentically Irish as you can get. This old hymn is translated from an eighth century (or older) poem by Irish saint. It wasn't translated into English until the early 20th century. Then it was made into this great hymn, "Be Thou My Vision."
