The artists most known for SOuth African folksong collecting are Josef Mirais and his wife Miranda. Their songs include those derived from the English tradition, the Dutch tradition, and a touch of Zulu here and there. From memory, some of their favorite songs:

We've Been Invited to Henrietta's Wedding
Out in the Wide World, Kitty
Oh, Brandy Leave Me Alone
The Zulu Warrior
Around the Corner, Behind the Bush
I'll See My Little Darlin' When the Sun Goes Down
Ian Vidiavitch (sp?)
Tonight All the Folks Will Cut the Corn

...and I have forgotten more than those!

Hope this helps,
