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

Belfast, thanks for the suggestion. Lighter, that was my impression as well but I wasn't sure about it. It gets confusing with many Irish singers recording Child ballads and everybody assuming they're Irish, but they're not really. Wonder if it would be because the Child ballads are in English and Gaelic was so much more prevalent among ordinary folks in Ireland?
