Bearheart Folklore: Selkie/Selchie? & pronunciation (39) RE: Folklore: Selkie/Selchie? & pronunciation 20 Mar 08


Where will I find that Danish ballad, hopefully with translation? I don't speak Danish (grew up in the eastern US and Mom's folks were Hungarian-- not very compatible with Danish! so we only ever spoke american).

Interestingly Dad is going to Denmark this summer for the first time, to visit relatives and the places his grandparents came from. I can get his help with Danish pronunciation, but he isn't good enough with it to translate. Would love to learn this ballad and record it for the folks over there.

and how did you come across it?
