Argyll Lassies

I learned “The Argyll Lassies” from my friend Johannes Perritaz, who plays in a band in Switzerland called Elandir. To be honest, I never heard it in a session… It was also recorded by Niall & Cillian Vallely on their album “Callan Bridge”, which is where Johannes learned it I believe.
