  Forty Shillings on the Drum      

(Military Songs of the 18th and Early 19th Centuries)

July, 2012 - Lyric Book


Simpson's Folly is pleased to offer Forty Shillings on the Drum for your enjoyment.

It has been ten years since we recorded Redcoats and Bluejackets and buyers have asked for a companion lyric book so as to sing these military songs of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Since 2012 marks the bi-centennial of the last war to be fought on Canadian soil, we thought it an appropriate time to honour the request.
