Errrrr... translation please? I know Scots reasonably well - but that looks like Gaelic to me!

What is "Tempo de Barrel of Scotch" and "Tempo de Rushin' Scotch"? Just curious...

Thanks Tim.

I guess you will have realised the point of my post. 'Scots' is a sister language very close to English (they diverged 600 to 700 years ago), unlike Gaelic which is only very distantly related (a common root could be dated to more than 3,500 years ago).

The music in the volume posted may well be entirely of lowland origin, and so the appropriate language would be Scots not Gaelic. That said, it is good to witness attempts at standardising Scots (which I generally understand well having lived in Scotland for five years) and the spread of Gaelic.

Anyway, it is an interesting volume...

Gaelic is a lovely language and it is interesting to hear it being spoken.

As a part time Munroist, i found it essential to learn a little.

I dare hardly speak or write anymore,
English language is not what I thought.
Have I been knocking on Babel's door,
by scanning this little book that I bought?

I added one page because this puzzles my mind,
(forgive me, I'm just a Dutch music-lover):
Fats is laughing....but what's there behind?
Do we see a Scottish design on this cover??

Tis only a wee bit of Tartan.
Although I can't tell from which Clan
Scotsmen wear it all over their bodies
And look more like a girl than a man

Off topic I know, but see if you can translate this :)
