Siobhan Miller ‘Bonny Light Horseman’

When I introduce this song I usually say “It’s an anti-war song, but the war it’s ‘anti’ is the Napoleonic Wars”. It’s a traditional song that exists in English and Irish versions; I learned it from James Keelaghan, but Siobhan Miller and her boys do a nice job of it here.


This is number two in my series of ‘Songs of War and Peace 2017’.


Norah Rendell performs Maria Dunn’s song ‘The Peddler’

This is a Maria Dunn song, but Norah does a nice job of it too, I think.


I’m going to be posting a few reflective songs on the theme of war and peace as we run up to Remembrance Day. This is the first.
