Ray Coen and Mai Hernon play a great version of ‘The Rambling Siuler’

I love this old Irish folk song; like Ray, I think I first heard it on an old Planxty recording but I love Ray’s beautiful flatpicking in this version, which suits the song so perfectly.

There’s a good discussion about the origins of the song and the meaning of the word ‘siuler’ on Mudcat here.
