Summary
The 19th-century scholar Francis James Child meticulously and authoritatively compiled 305 Scottish and English ballads into the highly influential collection known as "Child Ballads." Although Child feared these ballads would vanish from human memory, they continue to be adored, studied, and actively performed across disciplines and genres. Classic English and Scottish Ballads from Smithsonian Folkways (from The Francis James Child Collection) introduces listeners to 21 of these traditional songs from the labels rich collections at the Smithsonian Institution, and demonstrates the timelessness of their themesfrom murder and ghosts to jealousy and unrequited love. 72 minutes, 40-page booklet with extensive notes
