‍The majority of pieces on this disc come from the 1932 publication of English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians, collected by Cecil J. Sharp, edited by Maud Karpeles, and published in two volumes by Oxford University Press in London; four songs are from the collection of Fletcher Collins, Staunton, Virginia; three were drawn from sources in Bertrand H. Bronson's Traditional Tunes of the Child Ballads, published in four volumes by Princeton University Press, 1959-1973. The song that I call Turtledove, was collected by Alan Lomax. - Custer LaRu
