GABHAIRÍN BUÍ (Little Yellow Goat), AN. AKA and see "Hielan Laddie (1)," "Bonny Lass of Livingston (The)," "Cockleshells," "High Caul Cap," "High Caul'd Cap," "Pipers Dance (The)," "Kiss Me Lady," "Tá dhá ghabhairin bhuí agam." Irish, Polka. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB. Scottish in origin. In Ireland, this hexatonic tune is a variant of a popular folk song entitled "Tá dhá ghabhairin bhuí agam" (I have two little yellow goats). Breathnach (1985) remarks that the Cipín (Stick) Dance is performed to this jig in County Clare, but that the dance is named after the music. He finds the tune a variant of "Hielan Laddie (1)" and related to late 18th century Glasgow publisher James Aird's "Favourite Highland Quick Step 73d Regt. (A)" and "Bonny Lass of Livingston (The)." Playford prints a version in his Dancing Master as "Cockleshells/Cockle Shells (The)." See also O'Neill's air "Fill the Glass" and the Irish military march "Faugh-a-Ballagh."
