Aidan Crossey Patriot Game (tune source?) (21) Patriot Game 06 Feb 03

I seem to recall some time ago a discussion inwhich it was mooted that Dominic Behan may have got the air for The Patriot Game from an Appalachian balad.

Does anyone have any light to shed on this?

A mate of mine is doing some postgrad research on Irish rebel songs and hadn't heard of this connection. It might spin his enquiries off in a new direction!
