Kent Davis Child Ballads: US Versions (165* d) RE: Child Ballads: US Versions 22 Oct 11


Here's a link to two versions of Child #3, "The Elfin Knight". These are "Are Any of You Going to the Calhoun Fair?" and "O Where Are Going?", sung by the collector, Dr. Patrick Gainor, on his album "Folk Songs of the Allegheny Mountains".

The same link takes you to him singing versions of Child #'s 4, 7, 10, 11, 12, and 13, as well as a version you already have of Child #1. (You already have the text, but I don't know if you have the music.)

I have not been able to find out when he collected these ballads, but the album was recorded in 1963.
