Thread Name: Origins: Culloden Moor.
Subject: RE: Origins: Culloden Moor.
Thanks AR, but I am only trying to research this song about Culloden - which crosses over between trad. folk and pop music. Many old songs exist in old Scots or regional dialect on the subject. This is more recent than many, and very melodic, which is why a major record company made it the A side of a single - so I am trying to give credit and archive the story of this modern song for posterity before it gets lost in the mists of time. Of course there are many worthy songs that have been written, and are still being written, on Jacobites and Culloden...but I am only researching this two and a half minute song.
