about

Faclan 's Ceòl le | Words & Music by Fiona Mackenzie


Tha daoine air a bhith a' tighinn is a' falbh bhon dùthaich againn bho riamh. Bidh luchd-imrich fhathast a' tighinn a dh'Alba is tha sinne a' cur fàilte romhpa.

This song was written about Italian migrant Maria who came to Scotland in the late 1800's with her husband Salvadore. Her life story was told to Fiona by her granddaughter, Andrea. A portrait of Maria, which was the initial inspiration for the song, is kept in the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery collection.

lyrics

A million new faces to my eyes - Maria
A stolen heart, a purple gown - Mo chridhe
A scorching sun to this cold ground - Cara mia
A father’s love, a whispered plan

Turn me around and let in the light
Open the door to my life

Five blooms flying through the storm - Maria
Carries us on and makes us strong - Mo chridhe
Another world held back by fear - Cara mia
A ship now laid deep down in the dark

Turn me around and let in the light
Open the door to my life
