GUEST,Derek Schofield Keir Hardie and Ballads (7) RE: Keir Hardie and Ballads 23 Mar 15

Keir Hardie was present at the first performance by the Esperance girls of morris dances and folk songs collected by Cecil Sharp, in April 1906. Mary Neal was involved in Labour campaigning, as was her great friend Emmeline Pethick. Hardie's knowledge of ballads may of course have come from his Scottish upbringing, but would have been reinforced by the folk songs he heard that day.
