GUEST,Frances Irish versions of Child Ballads (18) Irish versions of Child Ballads 28 Feb 05


Looking for some help from some of the experts here. I'm preparing a concert program which will center around the Child Ballads. I'm looking for some Irish versions of Child ballads that were widely sung in Ireland. (Not gaelic, of course). Preferably not too tragic and depressing, since I have a lot of those already, but any suggestions welcomed. I have a heavy contingent of Scottish, English and American ballads and just want to balance the selection out a little. I seem to be drawing a mental blank at the moment.
