pattyClink Two tunes for Sean Van Vocht? (20) RE: Two tunes for Sean Van Vocht? 06 Dec 09

Many thanks for all these insights, gang! I had no idea about the link to Kelvin Grove and "The Shearin's".   

Also interesting about a song of that name being non-political in 1792. I have to wonder if it got pressed into use with a new set of political words for the rallies that were held during the events of 1798, similar to the way some spirituals got remodeled as civil rights songs.

If someone would care to change the thread title to have both Sean (or Shan) Van Vocht and Sean Bhean Bocht, go for it, but I'd rather not drop the 'van vocht' since it's something people would search on.
