Subject: Folklore: Dingle Regatta: Why 'Hey ho' etc?
The lively slide tune 'Dingle Regatta' is frequently played in sessions.

As demonstrated here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=KqlMP5yXjQo, the performers jump up & sing 'Hey ho diddley dee'

Has there been a famous recording/performance way back in the mists of time where this practice originated?

Anyone know?
