Hi All,

This week sees a major addition to the PW Joyce Irish Music Microsite from the Irish Traditional Music Archive: a section entitled 'Joyce's Ballad Sheets

Two valuable scrapbooks belonging to Patrick Weston Joyce, into which he pasted some 770 ballad sheets acquired by him over years, probably from street sellers, are held in the Dublin City Public Libraries and Archive, Pearse St, Dublin 2. In a joint cooperative project, the Dublin City Library and Archive has facilitated ITMA staff in making digital copies of the scrapbooks, and have given permission for their facsimile publication on the ITMA PW Joyce microsite.

M.

Very interesting! Nothing much new among the ballad sheets that isn't in other online collections. A new-to-me version of The Sailor Boy/Sweet William in Scrapbook 1 part 4 under the title The Constant Lover and a scarce version 'Judges and Juries' at Scrapbook 2 part 1 p30.

But perhaps more interesting some ms versions taken from oral tradition, some with tunes.
A very interesting version of 'Marrow Bones' recorded in 1857, scrapbook 2 pt1 pp59-63 called The Gay Old Woman'.

Bk2 pt 2 also has a full version of 'Lakes of Coolfin' pp19-21.

And a Bedlam ballad which I haven't yet identified but is familiar(any offers?) at 2-2 pp3-5 I think I spotted a broadside of it in one of the volumes but haven't time to check just now.

Well pointed up, M
