Mysha Origins: Irish Folk Tune? (26) RE: Origins: Irish Folk Tune? 02 Mar 15


Never noticed the resemblance with the Bog down the Valley before. But, yes, there is one. "The chicken or the egg?" I wonder.

Thanks, Noreen: That's definitely the one. A quick look around suggests it might be Scottish then, even if John McCormack was Irish. (That would match with Lassie ... as well, I guess.) Some checking of facts is indicated, it seems.

Other than that, half of the time I can't separate the opera from the lyrics when John McCormack sings, so it's now lyrics finding time. Fortunately I know a plethora of lyrics nearby.

Thanks everyone for the quick reactions,
