FROM THE BOSTON GLOBE!!!

Band taking act across the pond
By Christine McConville, Globe Staff, 2/26/2004
MTV may not be calling, but that doesn't matter to members of the local band the Jolly Rogues, as they prepare for their first international tour.
For 10 days this summer, the band's four members, from Wilmington, Concord, Reading, and Westford, will be performing before dancing crowds in England.
Just don't expect to find the group and its followers cavorting at trendy hot spots in London after the shows. This band specializes in tavern tunes and sea ditties from America's Colonial days.
"It's going to be great," said Jim Murray, 56, who plays guitar and mandolin for the Rogues, when he's not at work at an insurance company in Wilmington.
The rest of the group includes Mike Ryan of Concord on Native American and Irish hand drums; Paul Harty of Reading on fiddle, wind instruments, and mandolin; and Alan Hicks of Westford on guitar.
For concerts, they dress in period clothing, and Ryan, who specializes in Revolutionary era history, usually offers a brief history lesson before each song.
For the past year and a half, the group has performed to growing local crowds, while attracting fans overseas.
Thanks to the Internet, their songs were discovered by disc jockeys in Germany and the Netherlands. The British Broadcasting Corp. has even interviewed the band.
"It's bouncy music, and people over there like that," Murray said.
This summer, the group will perform a concert on a field in Tewkesbury, England, where in 1471 a pivotal battle in the War of the Roses was fought. That field now is slated for development, and the Rogues are paying their own way over there to help the preservation cause.
While in the United Kingdom, the group plans to perform in Billericay, England, a small village that is the namesake for Billerica, Mass.
"We're more popular than the Beatles," Murray joked.
The group met when they were working as volunteers at the Minute Man National Historical Park, which memorializes key battlefields in the Revolutionary War.
In late 2002, as park volunteers and staff were trying to figure out new ways to spread the joys of history, someone mentioned music.
"Music was important in that time period," said Ryan, who performs with the Rogues when he's not working as an associate dean for student development at Boston College.
The group released its first compact disc about a year ago. Members expect to release their second disc, called "Captain Billy's Privateers," in the spring.

FROM THE MIDDLESEXEAST !!!!!!

A local musical group is preparing to cross the Atlantic to help save an historic battlefield.
The Jolly Rogues, based in Wilmington, are currently finalizing plans for a trip to Tewkesbury, England, in late June and early July to perform a benefit concert to save a battlefield from 1471 (this battle was part of the War of the Roses). The battle that took place in that location helped determine the King of England, which in turn set in motions the events which eventually led the colonists here in America to seek their independence.
"We were asked to play and some of the organizers were quite surprised to find out that a group of Yanks was willing to come over there and be a part of this," said Jim Murray, a member of the Jolly Rogues. "They're planning a Fourth of July barbeque in our honor while we are there."
The concert will help benefit a group dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of the battlefield in English history. The Tewkesbury Battlefield Society is a group of interested people who want to preserve, promote and interpret the history, archaeology and natural history of the sites associated with the battle for the present and future generations.
The battle was fought on 4th May 1471 between the Yorkist and the Lancastrian armies. According to Englsih texts on the subject: "The Kynge apprailed hymslfe, and all his hooste set in good array: ordeined three wards: displayed his bannars: dyd blowe up the trompets: commytted his caws and qwarell to Almyghty God, to owr most blessyd lady his mother: Vyrgyn Mary, the glorious Seint George, and all the saynts: and advaunced, directly upon his enemyes: approachinge to thier filde, which was strongly in a marvaylows strong grownd pyght, full difficult to be assayled." The Yorkists triumphed and 2,000 Lancastrians were slaughered. The location of the 2,000 bodies is unknown but is believed to be somewhere within the battlefield area.
The Jolly Rogues aren't going to make a cent off the trip, and are looking to pay for the adventure using proceeds from local concerts, compact disc sales, and donations.
This talented band of musicians and singers has a varied, intriguing repertoire of 18th and 19th Century material from period commemorative, tavern/drinking, romantic ballads, sea shanties, children's ditties, songs of revolt to music of the underground railroad, the Civil War, political views and a spiritual nature.

I downloaded the songs "The maid from Willington" and "Boys from Blue Hill". I like the shanty-music. It is easy listening music with a historical value. We in Holland have also many shanty-choirs. You can find most of them on the internet. In my radioprogram I play often one or more songs. But I want some music from America, England, Scotland,etc.

Quote: Three-year old Allison is a big "Jolly Rogues" music fan. Her dad obtained a copy of the CD "Capt. Billy''s Privateers" and played it around the house and in the car. Now, whenever Jay buckles Allison into her car seat for a ride and asks what CD she would like to hear for the trip, she begins chanting "J-o-l-l-y R-o-g-u-e-s...J-o-l-l-y R-o-g-u-e-s... J-o-l-l-y R-o-g-u-e-s".
