The Story of the Magically Conceived Brothers
Betsy Whyte

Betsy Whyte tells a traditional Traveller tale of two brothers who were magically conceived, one born to a Queen. One brother rescues the other from a witch who had cast a spell of metamorphosis.

The story was recorded in 1984 by the School of Scottish Studies. You can listen to the original tape on the online archive resource Tobar an Dualchais: Track ID 81622
