This is my instrumental version. The Dark Isle is Benbecula, part of the Outer Hebridies, an island chain of the West Coast of Scotland. I have never been to Benbecula, but lived on the West Coast for quite a few years. This tune absolutely captures the wild and ragged beauty of the Highlands.

My version is instrumental, but here are the words to this beautiful song: Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree; But I, being young and foolish, with her did not agree. In a field by the river my love and I did stand, And on my leaning shoulder she placed her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs; But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.

about

This is my first CD.
We recorded it in an old church in Applecross (Scotland), a beautiful place where I lived for 10 years. I think it actually captures the spirit of the place.

about

Mareike Beyer UK

My music is an expression of the profound joy I feel when I play a piece, be it sad or exuberant.
The harp is such a beautiful yet powerful instrument. I like to show its magic and its versatility.
My tunes & songs are often traditional pieces or (contemporary) covers, as I simply love sharing and passing on music that touches me deeply.
