Weasel Books Irish songs which aren't Irish (121* d) RE: Irish songs which aren't Irish 03 Jan 05


I don't think this thread was started with bigotry in mind. Is it bigotry to talk about the real origins of a song? Has anyone said Irish CAN'T sing them?

So many of the songs in the irish tradition are Scottish anyway, but they are still GOOD SONGS.

Just scanning the back of a Dubliner's recording, here are a few:

The High Reel (Lord MacDonald, Lord MacDonald's March to Harlaw).

Tramps and Hawkers.

Banks of the Roses.
