Thread Name: If you don't like ballads......
Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
Here's a youtube video...

I'd considered starting a thread for it, but never bothered..
So it might fit in here for additional contextual material.
I can't vouch for the academic quality, but it's an interesting half hour documentary
on the history and social status of the Hurdy Gurdy and it's players
over several centuries..

It might be slightly relevant in this thread...???
