A bit of fun. This old Irish air trails a lot of history behind it.
Nice. I think that was the tune often associated with Custer's 7th Cav.
Thanks, Al. Yes, among other things.
Fun indeed, and very cool!
It is also song of the First Cavalry Division from Vietnam which traces it's history to the old 7th.
We did an event in Minnesota at Fort Snelling, and were told that we could not play this tune, due to native American sentiments. We were kind of surprised by that. I have been told at times not to play Dixie or Kingdom Coming (believe it or not), but this was a first.
I understand that in Northern Ireland it has an association with the Orange Lodge parades as is therefore not welcome in Catholic neighborhoods.
