"The Water is Wide"

Title

"The Water is Wide"

Description

This folk song, also known as "O Waly Waly," originally hails from the British Isles, and like many other such traditional songs, is about unrequited love. This performance by David Schnaufer and Sandy Conatser is performed on a so-called "courting dulcimer" that sports two fretboards for two people to play simultaneously.
