Tonight's Music

Tonight we have a double feature consisting of two takes on a traditional Irish love song, Mo Ghile Mear (My Gallant Darling). First we have some of the greatest talents in the Celtic music world including Karen Matheson, Mary Black, Karan Casey and Mary Ann Kennedy. This is from the BBC series The Highland Sessions and was the last musical number of the series, which is why the video features a retrospective look at the series.

Next we have Celtic Woman's more modern version which is more energetic with its full orchestral backing.
