GUEST,andymac Lyr Req: Battle of the Somme (50) RE: Battle of the Somme 22 Nov 06

Jack, with reference to your comment regarding "Bonny Glenshee" being an entirely different tune to "Freedom Come All Ye"; Hamish himself, in an interview on a Radio Scotland "Songlines" programme, mentioned that both songs were the same at the start.

I remember being in a session once at Eyemouth when, after someone singing a ballad (usual blood, gore and tragedy) John Eaglesham started playing "Battle of the Somme" and the comment was that it sounded a lot cheerier, till the subject matter was pointed out to them....
