Ye banks and braes
Last updated: 24.01.17

As with Comin' through the rye, "Ye banks and braes" is song known in childhood but never learned it until coming across it in Andrew Gant's Folk Songs of the British Isles. The text is by Robert Burns and can be found in the The Scots Musical Museum (1782-1803) and the melody is traditional Scottish also known as The Caledonian Hunt's Delight
This tune is truly delightful, for my taste melody and text are a perfect match. It is a gentle two-verse song of a young girl betrayed in love and, left with a thorn (sic)!
