    I’m supposed to be´╗┐ working on a project about oliver cromwell, but this has put me under a spell ­čśÇ

  • connollyite:

    @rf8365 Studied this tune and the basic sotry of it once for a folk music project. Eamonn Ryan (Ned) was an earl deposed during the time of the williamite wars (if memory serves me correctly) who allegedly became a rapparee. The folklore around him goes that he hid out in the mountains and continued fighting as a bandit, robin hood sort of stuff, good stuff. The song dates from the later 18th century, 1770s i think and I know was originally not sung in´╗┐ English.

    oops, make that Feb 25th. An amazing rendition of cotton-eyed Joe is in the offing mixed in with their Irish music.´╗┐

  • lominac:

    Just saw them at the Martin Theater in Panama City, FL. (Feb 24) The You tube videos are great but they don’t do them justice live. Even by gulf coast´╗┐ standards, these musicians are awesome.
