Happy Hogmanay!

As Scot­land (and the rest of Britain) reach­es the New Year with the Amer­i­c­as just a few hours behind, Radio Riel offers you a selec­tion of large­ly tra­di­tion­al Celtic music to cross into 2009 — and we’ll play Auld Lang Syne at mid­night.

Despite all the hap­pen­ings in the world at large and at home, we wish all our lis­ten­ers a hap­py, peace­ful and pros­per­ous 2009, in-world and in all the oth­er worlds we inhab­it. ‘A Guid New Year to ane an’ a’!’

Should auld acquain­tance be for­got,
And nev­er brought to mind?
Should auld acquain­tance be for­got,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kind­ness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne!

Bli­adhna Mhath Ur!
