Alexander Mitchell: Music

Arran Boat/Paddy Fahey's/Devlin's/Bagdad Bully

(Alexander Mitchell)
Arran Boat / One of my favorite airs . Some say Scottish , some Irish . I think the former . Either way , I first heard it on Walt Michael's hammer dulcimer recording and have played it ever since. The jigs are the sultry sort , especially Paddy Fahey's . Irish ! and Baghdad Bully was my ode to Saddam BEFORE Desert Storm when he was kickin up the dust in Kuwait.
