GUEST,paddy Irish tunes/songs stolen from english (57* d) RE: Irish tunes/songs stolen from english 13 Apr 05


pavane what do you mean by "MAY be originally from Scotland"?

It's an Irish tune called "londonderry air" period!
The lyric was penned reportedly by a well to do english magistrate - but probably stolen from some penniless minstrel.

Black velvet band set in Barking - what a load of bollox.

Just own up the Irish have THE best musical tradition in these islands. The scotch & english are jealous.
