Thread Name: British ballads in South Africa
Subject: Folklore: British ballads in South Africa
When the British settled North America, settlers brought ballads with them which naturalized into the new culture.

Was there a similar phenomenon in South Africa? Are there collections of South African versions of Childs and other British ballads?

Thanks,
