Thread Name: English/Scot/Child ballads - CDs?
Subject: English/Scot/Child ballads - CDs?
Can anyone recommend a good CD of traditional English/Scottish ballads, including Child ballads? I've started getting into the genre via songs like Bob Dylan's "Barbara Allen" & Doc Watson's "Matty Groves".

Who are some of the modern masters for this stuff - Martin Carthy? Ewan MacColl?

Thanks!
