The Child Ballad in Ireland presented by Ian Lynch

Ian Lynch from Lankum and the Fire Draw Near podcast on the topic of Child ballads in Ireland:

“Of the 305 ballads included in Professor Francis James Child’s seminal nineteenth-century publication ‘The English and Scottish Popular Ballads’, versions of around 50 have been identified in the Irish tradition. This presentation will serve as an introduction to the fascinating subject of the so-called ‘Child Ballad’ in Ireland and amongst other aspects, will examine the ways in which these ballads made their way into Ireland from the 18th century onwards to become embedded in Irish traditional culture, as well as the changes that they underwent in the process.”
