    Scots Irish musical tradition in the U.S.

    I love this music.

    See:

    Am I wrong in saying it kind of sounds like proto country music? I like it.

    It's indeed proto country, and parts of it worked into the beginnings of rock and roll.

    I like it a LOT.

    The ballads all used to be song by the folk singers of the sixties and seventies.

    Two of my favorites are Scottish, not Ulster Scots Irish but it's basically the same.

    I am a poor wayfaring stranger: one of my favorite ever songs. First Ed Sheeran smashing it, and then a bluegrass version which is equally good.



    Bluegrass; more authentic in my opinion.

    Another fabulous version from Ireland:

    There are dozens of covers of it because it's such a fabulous song.

    That is really good. Thanks for sharing. Wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
