SouthernCelt Songs about the American Revolution (15) A question for the song history experts 04 Jun 08

I was recently involved in a multi-artist concert (a memorial benefit fund-raiser) and had occasion to meet and talk with a great Celtic singer, Danny O'Flaherty, who currently operates out of east Texas. He has a penchant for patriotic songs both Irish and American and asked if I knew any songs of that nature about the American Revolution. I couldn't think of a single one to suggest to him.

I did a search of digitrad for revolutionary war and got no hits that really have to do with the war, American Independence or American patriotism of that era. Do any of you musical historians have suggestions of where I could look for such material (or refer to him to let him review what's there)?

If any of you would like to learn more about Danny, you can visit his web site.
