Thread Name: Origins: Aikendrum
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Irish folksong- Eamon Drumm
Ewan MacColl sang an "Aiken Drum" that's not included in those that Murray on Saltspring contributed to the DT, but which he mentioned there as in Hogg's 'Jacobite Relics'. It commenced "Ken ye who a whig can fight, Aiken Drum, Aiken Drum". This might be called a war ballad.
