Gerard Background To Patriotic Diggers? (4) Background REQ To Patriotic Diggers? 16 Jul 03

In the song, Patriotic Diggers, verse 2, 5th line says: "Bright Apollo's Sons leave their pipe and tabor" Now, I am curious, where does the term "Apollo's Sons" come from? From what little I know, I suspect they were ship builder's. Was there a guild at one time called "Apollo's Sons"?
