Joe Richman Origins: Fair and Easy vs Kick the Pope (6) RE: Origins: Fair and Easy vs Kick the Pope 13 Aug 16


On thesession.org website they have midis of both "Garryowen" and "Fair and Easy" (supposedly the same as "Kick the Pope"). Both are 6/8 marching jigs, but they are definitely NOT the same tune. The other question is the possibility that "Kick the Pope" is the same as "The Wild Colonial Boy" tune. I don't think so. I think that the band in the video is a "Kick the Pope" Band, but they are playing a tune that is probably not "Kick the Pope". "The Wild Colonial Boy" may or may not be popular with Fenians, but the tune was probably used for other things before the 1830s and may have another name that I am unaware of.
