Up And Waur Them A' Willie (1837)


Fan mail for William Lyon Mackenzie. A song of the Rebellion of 1837. This came in from an anonymous bard in Hawkesbury along the Ottawa River, and was printed by Mackenzie in one of his newspapers. (The Constitution, I think) It is based on a famous Scottish Jacobite song of the same name. The lyrics sing quite well.

In the sound file linked below is the second piece in a medley - after "I'll Be a Tory". From the 1984 lp "Scatter The Ashes" by Muddy York.
