Hi Colin and others, yesterday I explored the google video (go to www.google.com, click on Video, search). I found that some of the video of Houl your wheest were on line, but you can't find them by searching on their name. Try Ulster Scots . However there's also some clips of the Ulster Scots Folk Orchestra (Search on them) singing Robbie Burns. Also Willie Drennan. As it's free, the quality ain't great and sometimes the clips are a wee bit long in the talk and a wee short on the singing, but hey! It's free.
There's also some Lambeg Drums, for those wondering what they sound like. I was amazed! And some fife and drum groups marching at various parades.
Here's one with Lambegs, Ulster accent, Willie Drennan, Ulster Scots Folk Orchestra:
Go halfway through for the music.
You can also find some free clips of the Apprentice Boys (oddly indexed as Irish folk music)
Also the AOH has found Google video:
Here's an AOH parade in Kingston, NY:
Here ya go: Ulster Scots hill billy gospel bluegrass music. Move to a third of the way through the clip to hear the music:
