English Folk Songs From the Southern Appalachians: Comprising
Excerpt from English Folk Songs From the Southern Appalachians: Comprising 122 Songs and Ballads, and 323 TunesEconomically they are independent. As there are practically no available markets, little or no surplus produce is grown, each family extracting from its holding just what is needed to support life, and no more. They have very little money, barter in kind being the customary form of exchange.Many set the standard of bodily and material comfort perilously low, in order, presumably, that they may have the more leisure and so extract the maximum enjoyment out of life. The majority live in log-cabins, more or less water-tight, usually, but not always, lighted with windows; but some have built larger and more comfortable homesteads.They area leisurely, cheery people in their quiet way, in whom the social instinct is very highly developed. They dispense hospitality with an openhanded generosity and are extremely interested in and friendly toward strangers, communicative and unsuspicious. But surely you will tarry with us for the night?

Fairies and Folk: Approaches to the Scottish Ballad Tradition (BASE - Ballads and Songs - Engagements)
A Treasury of American Folklore: Stories, Ballads, and Traditions of the People
A Treasury of American Folklore: Stories, Ballads, and
Named by the Library of Congress in a 2012 exhibit as among the top “100 Books that Shaped America,” this two-volume set contains 500 stories and 100 songs collected from the author’s time as national folklore editor for the Federal Writer’s Project (1938-39) as well as his work as archivist of folksongs at the Library of Congress. As Carl Sandburg writes in his foreword, “So here we have nothing less than an encyclopedia of the folklore of America. An encyclopedia is where you get up into box car numbers…besides giving you the company of nice, darnfool yarn spinners, it will give you something of the feel of American history, of the gloom chasers that moved many a good man who fought fire and flood, varmints and vermin, as region after region filled with settlers and homesteaders.”

Warrior Lore: Scandinavian Ballads
Warrior Lore: Scandinavian
Thor resorts to cross-dressing in a bid to recover his stolen hammer. The hero Widrick Waylandsson comes face to face with a troll in the forest. A king's daughter is abducted from a convent in rural Sweden. A young fighter has to show off his prowess in skiing and shooting for King Harald Hardrada. And more... The medieval Scandinavian ballads in this collection tell stories of champions and fighters, vikings, and trolls, drawing on Norse mythology and heroic legend. There are riddles, and there are appearances from Thor, Loki, Sigurd, and other figures from the myths of the Edda and from history. Narrative ballads were part of an oral folk music tradition in Scandinavia, and were first written down around 1600, although the ballads themselves are older. These new English verse translations are mainly based on Swedish tradition. All the ballads included are: Widrick Waylandsson's Fight with Long-Ben Reyser; Twelve Strong Fighters; Hilla-Lill; Sir Hjalmar; The Hammer Hunt; The Stablemates; Sven Swan-White; The Cloister Raid; Heming and the Mountain Troll; Heming and King Harald.

Twa corbies - Two Ravens, English folk ballad, Pied Pipers.
Twa Corbies (Two Ravens) is a haunting Scottish folk ballad, first published in a song book in 1611. This version is the best, in my opinion, because of the 'poliphonic' introduction, because the arrangement is great, and because there is a beautiful reed-pipe solo in the end. The text runs appro...
