Rising of the Bad Moon

Oh well, I’ll assume that the theme is still Irish rebellion songs. (Though it easily could have gone to war in general, Boy George, or other places, after my last post.)

So, why don’t I start out with The Rising of the Moon, about the Irish rebellion of 1798. (They rebel a lot, so you have to date these things). This recording of it is by Na Casaidigh. It’s one of these songs that just about every Irish band has recorded, though.

I’ll follow it up with a Scottish band playing a cover of a song that most Scottish bands don’t play, being played very differently then normal. This is Battlefield Band with Bad Moon Rising, a song originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
