Thread Name: Origins: Child Ballads in 18th c. America?
Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads in 18th c. America?
Will happily supply a list of those already noted (pm an e-mail address), but I am not looking for versions recorded in Ireland - I can get those for myself, and Tom's list is pretty comprehensive as to which ballads have been recovered so far.
I am looking for those either learned in Ireland or said to have been heard there but discovered elsewhere (U.S., Canada, Australia etc) - as in the example I gave from Maine.
Would be grateful to receive any quotes such as with the Maine example.
