The "lift up your kilts" line (and variations) is often used during the chorus of "The Wild Rover", which is in the DT. Comeson three stressed beats after "And its no, nay, never....).

Or alternatively you could say; "Right up Your Kilt" - but yes, it's a local variation on the traditional hand-claps of the Wild Rover's chorus! Cheers!

I always though they said “light up your guilt”

Lou Killen always said one of her greatest regrets was teaching "The Wild Rover" to the Clancy Brothers -- they added the claps which are NOT traditional. (Okay, okay, the audience likes it.)

Needless to say, "Lift up your kilt!" is also NOT traditional.

In Edinburgh Uni Folk Club (sixties) we clapped four times while we bellowed 'Right up yer kilt!'.

"Lou Killen always said one of her greatest regrets was teaching "The Wild Rover" to the Clancy Brothers -- they added the claps which are NOT traditional."

Quite correct - Lou did it without the handclaps but with a little riff on the concertina filling the space.

The song went from LK to the Dubliners, and thence to the Clancy Bros. I thought it was the Dubs who introduced the claps, and speeded up the song, as well as replacing Lou's words with a text from Australia.
