Green Hills of Islay Song

Islay Music in stencil

It's time for another Islay music evening I've decided. This evening the song is about Islay, although I believe the artist performing it in the video, Allen Barnett, is from Canada. Here we go:

I haven't found the lyrics anywhere yet, but on the Tobar an Dualchais website you can find another version and information for The Green Hills of Islay. It was composed by the Duncan MacNiven (Donnchadh MacNìmhein) who passed away in 1955 and is described as ‘A sentimental homeland song in praise of Islay and its beautiful landscape’. I hope you'll enjoy it.
