Thread Name: Origins: Fiddler's Green
Subject: RE: Fiddler's Green
Re: "Fiddler's Green" being thought traditional--we recently saw the movie "The Hunley," with Donald Sutherland and Armand Assante, a drama about the Confederate submarine. During a barroom scene, someone was playing "Fiddler's Green" on a concertina. But the real kicker was during tense moments aboard the submarine, including the final scene where it was filling with water--the crew all started singing "Clear Away in the Morning" by Gordon Bok! At least they listed him in the credits, but not a word about John Connolly. One can't help but wonder what the writers were thinking, when so many appropriate period songs are available.
