My Dad earlier sent me an old Scottish drinking song which is rather bawdy, and had to do with whiskey and the fact that a proper Scotsman wears no underwear beneath his kilt!:
My response was this excerpt from Ken Russell’s film “Lair of the White Worm”:
YouTube: Pogues: The D’ampton Worm
BTW: I like the language here: ‘weir’ for pond and ‘coos’ for cows!
You can REALLY hear where our own Appalachian tunes came from! Which then mutated into Bluegrass and eventually ‘Country’… and even had a hand in the creation of Rock ‘n’ Roll!
These roots go WAAAAAAAAAAAY back!
