Thread Name: Border & Hero ballads, Child #171-188
Subject: RE: Border & Hero ballads, Child #171-188
Sadie here. Jim Carroll wants my email address; it is "damascus at cds1 dot net". I don't have all of Blood and Roses, but I know most of the MacColl ballads and he pretty much skipped a lot of this part of the book. I would love to have more border ballad versions; I have been playing almost exclusively Raymond Crooke, who is plowing his way through all of Child, recording every ballad and putting them on youtube. I finish with #180 tomorrow (6 to 8 pm pst on radio KGGV.FM) and on Jan. 26 I will cover #181-185. Thanks for any help.
