Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier/Shule Aroon

Shule Aroon, Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier: the song and many versions of bits of these verses turn up inthe music of Ireland, Scotland, and across America.

This one is a beat driven take on the song by the Rooney Family of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. They're playing in the Stratchclyde Suite of Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall during Celtic Connections in January 2008.
