Sandy Paton Some old Scots Child Ballads with tunes (5) RE: Some old Scots Child Ballads with tunes 21 Nov 02

Sharyn, if you're interested in "The King's Dochter Lady Jean," the late Sara Cleveland sang the only version ever collected in the United States for me back in the early 60s. She called it "Queen Jane" (no relation to the "Queen Jane lay in labor" ballad), and I included it on her Folk-Legacy album: "Sara Cleveland - Songs and Ballads of the Upper Hudson Valley." Thats' C-33 in my catalog, available at this time only as a custom cassette, but it comes with the with booklet of texts and notes on her songs that accompanied the original LP. Sara's parents immigrated from Ireland, but her mother lived for several years in Scotland before coming to this country. Sara learned her songs from her parents, other members of her family, and from friends in her Adirondack/Hudson Valley community. Many of her songs were clearly of Scottish origin. I've forgotten how to do the blue clickie things, but my web site is at, if you want to check it out. You sound to me like a person who would be interested in learning a number of Sara's songs.
