Thread Name: Bronson tunes - Child Ballads
Subject: Bronson's tunes
Hello friends,

I'm wondering if anyone happens to know what publisher now has the rights to the Bronson book of tunes to the Child ballads. Or, for that matter, to the Child ballads. I don't know why they have been allowed to stay out of print so long. It occurs to me that if enough folk song societies wrote to whoever that publisher is and told them how many members they have, how much they want the books reissued, and how much people are paying for used editions, and if they offered to do everything in their power to publicise the existence of a new edition - that maybe it would happen - ???

What do you think? Has anyone got info to contribute?
