Percustard Lyr/Chords Req: Travelling Down the Castlereigh (8) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Travelling Down the Castlereig 23 Jun 02


Hi all,

I have discovered that I have, at home in a number of books, 4 versions of "Travelling Down the Castlereigh".

It is interesting to note that most singers considered "their version" to be "the version".

I reckon I'll muddy the water somemore and compile a tune from "all versions" and use as the final part of Tursacans medley of " Roscrea Cows", "The Rabbit Trapper" and "Travelling Down the Castlereigh".

It would be good to get all the different versions in chronological order.

Cashmere, for instance, appeared to be quite adamant that his version was the one. Is his the oldest? Where did he learn it from? And what about the "common" version of today?

I think I should hit the books again.

Seeya

Mark
