The article discusses written and video material recorded from Laine Magi, a folklore informant who was born in Voru County, South Estonia, but is living on the island of Hiiumaa. The materials were recorded during the folklore collection on the islandi in 2004-2007. The collected materials include fifteen Kalevala-metric end-rhymed folk songs (regilaul) in dialect and literary language. A more detailed discussion involves three Kalevala-metric folk songs in Voru dialect: 'Veli ai usso' (Brother Drove Me out), a song about family relationships 'Vanamiis minno kose' (An Old Man Proposed Marriage to Me'), a song about proposing marriage, and 'Vaikene olli' (When I Was Young), a song about orphanhood. These three songs are analysed from the angle of formal rules and dialectal language, and the collected material is discussed from the aspect of the performer's biography and the social context.
