Thread Name: London ballad chat
Subject: RE: London ballad chat
The next Ballad Chat in the bar at "Cecil's place" (C# House) will be from 19:00 to 21:00 next Wednesday, 12th June, when we will hear and discuss some versions of The Bailiff's Daughter of Islington, Child 105, and Sir Hugh, Child 155.

I understand that the cafe will be closed because of lift installation work, so tea will probably not be available and you will need to bring the wherewithal to wet your weasands, or else wait till 8-ish when the bar should open. (The room is normally open all the time but not the bar.)

In previous months we have heard and discussed:
The Two Sisters
The Daemon Lover
Sir Hugh
The Farmer's Curst wife
The False Knight on the Road
The Cruel Mother
Captain Wedderburn's Courtship (with the discussion extending to some of the other riddle ballads)
Willie o Winsbury
Lord Randall

After this month's session there will be a break for the summer, but we are scheduled to start again on 25th September.
