The Balve Cave is the biggest cultural cave in Europe. It is located in Balve, Germany. And every year the Festspiele Balver Höhle organization is presenting the Balver Höhle Irish folk & Celtic Music Festival.
“The Raggle Taggle Gypsy” is a traditional celtic folk music song that originated as a Scottish border ballad,
and has been popular throughout Britain,Ireland and North America. It concerns a rich lady who runs off to join the gypsies (or one gypsy). Common alternative names are “The Raggle Taggle Gypsies O”,”The Gypsy Laddie(s)”,”Black Jack David” (or “Davy”) and “Seven Yellow Gypsies”.
