Thread Name: Child Ballads: Anyone recorded the lot?
Subject: RE: Child Ballads: Anyone recorded the lot?
Oops! I had meant to type "John Jacob Niles" not "Richard Dyer-Bennett." Niles claimed to have found several versions of "Judas" in oral tradition in America. I've never seen another oral version, and most scholars I've spoken to consider that Niles was being, shall we say, very imaginative! Anyone with the Roud database handy?
