Thread Name: Lyr Add: Ballad of Frankie Silver
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Ballad of Frankie Silver
Here is a wonderful documentary about the story behind the Ballad of Frankie Silver, as well as a fine rendition of the ballad itself. (Only you have to watch the entire documentary to hear the whole thing sung.

The first I ever heard of Frankie Siver was a novel. I'm not sure it was Sharyn McCrumb' book, but probably it was. If so, it was a good read.
