The White Cockade

Jed Marum based this song on an old Gaelic poem about the last Jacobite uprising.  The song calls on Irishman to fight for Bonnie Prince Charlie and restore Catholicism in England.  The camerawork on the video is a little weird but it's a great song.

  2. Nice song. It got me to wondering how much different things might have been had the Jacobites won & Bonnie Prince Charles had taken over rather than the Hanovers running things. There may not have been an American revolution. & these days we might be a part of the British Commonwealth.

  3. The Ranter: You should check out Jed Marum's music. Several of his albums can be downloaded for $6.

    Al: A thought provoking scenario. Have you ever read the book "What If?" It's full of alternative histories. A fun read.
