Hi folks,

Some of you might not be aware of where early American music came from. The answer is Ulster! I collect the music whenever I can. Much to my delight I found this video and a song I already own here on the Internet:

It recounts the Battle of the Boyne. This particular recording I believe is by a group that is Catholic but plays in both Ulster traditions for fear that it'll die out. However methinks we are in a bit of a revival.
