GUEST,Hilary Child Ballads about wars (12) RE: Child Ballads about wars 17 Jun 11


No, it is not for a school project. I am thinking of participating in an informal sort of singing/storytelling competition in which the theme is war. The only child ballads I know which could possibly have anything to do with war are "The Golden Vanity," and certain versions of "Geordie." So I am trying to find ones which are a bit more obviously connected with wars. Nor is it necessary for me to be singing a child ballad. But I am quite fond of them.
