Subject: RE: definition of a ballad
Bill, I'm afraid that few things get up my nose faster or further than ballad denouncers, so I looked a couple of your previous Mudcat postings. Turns out in one of them you mention Doc Watson, Dan Crary, Merle Travis and Norman Blake in the space of a few dozen words. Just think of a ballad as the Doc Watson of folksong and you won't go far wrong
