GUEST,Len Wallace Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian? (60* d) Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian? 04 Feb 04


Hello Mudcatliners,

Okay - - "Whiskey in the Jar" or "Kilgary Mountain". I heard a number stories about its origins. I know it's considered Irish, but it also may have Appalachian origins. Anyone know?

Also, The Black Velvet Band. First line is usually sung as "In a neat little town they call Belfast", but aren't there versions which could place it as English in origin?

thanks gang.
