Jim Carroll If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 15 May 19


"Is there even one ballad Child included from a Traveller source?"
Are you serious /
Try Jeannie Roberson or the Stewarts or John Reilly..... all major sources of Child ballads
Few collectors in Child's time went anywhere near the Travellers - as late as Gavin Greig's collecting, they were being avoided - he managed to miss a Robin Hood ballad from a neighbouring Traveller
There is no question that they had the ballads
Prior to Henderson, et al, the early English collectors, like Charlotte Bourne were finding Travellers a rich source
"Bigged Up"
More than a little dismissive, I think
