Isn't it great that people are still intrigued by ballads?

Glasgow Ballad Workshop is still going strong after a good number of years -- slightly different format from yours in that we explore and teach a (less-well-known) ballad, maybe offering some alternative verses from other texts to make a more satisfactory version: but there's always plenty of discussion and we too stress that there is no one right way, just the hope of finding a pleasing end product.

And it's also reassuring that we have some young people in fairly regular attendance.
