Thread Name: is Rattlin Bog Irish?
Subject: RE: is Rattlin Bog Irish?
Seamus Ennis sang this for me in our Belsize Park flat in 1952. This recording was later included on our Folkways recording, "Field Trip Ireland." You may order it in audiotape form (and maybe CD) from Smithsonian/Folkways Recordings. They're in D.C. Seamus sang it as in Irish song. Our own Kentucky version is, "The Tree in the Valley-O," probably from England.
