Lucy Simpson learned the song from the great Irish sean nos singer, Joe Heany, when he was living in New York. While it is sung to the air of "Loch Lomond," the source of the version that has made its way into the folk revival repertoire was as Irish as he could be. See the two versions in the DT.

I sing this song whenever I'm requested. I perform quite a few concerts at museums and historic sites, so I try to stay within the confines of the site's era of interest. My question is: How old is "Red Is The Rose?" I'm beginning to wonder if it is Victorian or later. Thanks

Of course, it's originally Scottish (Loch Lomond).Bobby O'Brien says something about that in the Discussion Forum April last year. Look up the thread "Lyrics? Westering home and a song in the air" in the Search Forum.

We perform the song "Red is the Rose." Would like to know any background info. Is it Irish or Scottish? Our version uses the tune "Loch Lomond."
