Thread Name: definition of a ballad
Subject: RE: definition of a ballad
can anyone define a genuine ballad?.
by that I mean,ballad in the way folk enthusiasts,understand the word.[eg Barbara Allen,LordRandall]
does it matter,if the ballad has been written,and is it important that it should have been sung and or altered by the folk or numbers of people.
that was my original post,thats pretty clear,what genre I am asking about.
