Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Aussie versions of Child ballads?
Hi Sandra and all,

Thanks to everybody for your assistance and help. Special thanks to Sandra for that nice version of Golden Vanity. I'll try to get my hands on that Song Links CD.
The reason I'm interested in Aussie versions of the Child ballads is due to my involvement in a project called Man Woman and Child . There was such interest in this project right across Ireland, that it has been decided to present it again with ten new singers who will each learn and sing a number of different Child ballads and present them at a series of concerts in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin next December. As I stated in my opening post to the thread I have a great interest in Australian songs. My interest stems from the time I lived down under in the 1970's and early 80's and I would like to include some of these Australian variants of the Child ballads in my repetoire.
