Happy Birthday!

Helen Hartness Flanders

Born

5/19/1890
(d5/23/1972)

One of the greats in collecting - collected vast numbers of songs and particularly Anglo-American ballads in New England. So much good stuff that was largely unavailable until very recently (with a big boost from Margaret MacArthur.) Anyone who (understandably) thinks that you have to go to Scotland to learn any decent ballads needs only a quick glance at this material to open a whole new world of brilliant material.

[per her granddaughter, Nancy-Jean Ballard Seigel, who has a major book on her in progress (Ancient Ballads Traditionally Sung in New England). See Voices, vol 29       Also see the Helen Hartness Flanders Ballad Collection at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont - includes full title list but none digitized yet.]
