Thread Name: Songbook of Child Ballads?
Subject: RE: Songbook of Child Ballads?
The next version of the Digital Tradition will have at least one version of the lyrics to every Child ballad (I have 4 more to enter). We have at least one tune entered for 160 of the 305 ballads.
There are many ballad collections that contain a large proportion of Child ballads and several of them include tunes. Many if these are collections of songs collected in a particular area, ie Virginia (Davis, some tunes)
