Thread Name: London ballad chat
Subject: RE: London ballad chat
The ballad chats resume this coming Wednesday, 25th September, as before at 19:00 at Cecil Sharp House.

The two ballads to be sung and discussed this time will be The Wife of Ushers Well and The Cruel Brother. Sheila Miller has a 'fairly unusual' version of the Wife of Usher's Well, and Martin Nail has a version of The Cruel Brother collected in Cornwall in 1823.
