Child Ballads - Loomis House complete corrected 2nd edition

The Child Ballads are a key component of the British traditional repertoire. Collector Francis James Child assembled and published a vast collection. Mark and Laura Heiman have prepared a corrected second edition for Loomis House Press; we've just acquired the fifth and last volume for the Whittaker Library at RSAMD (soon to be the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).


Useful online links:-

  • RSAMD Catalogue. Check the Whittaker Library's holdings of Child Ballads.  (The Loomis House Press collection is not the only edition.)
  • Search on Child Ballads on Scran, which offers educational access to digital materials representing Scottish material culture and history. The Whittaker Library subscribes to this, for the benefit of our  staff and students. 
  • Lesley Nelson (aka the Contemplator)'s Child Ballad Website:- 
  • Youtube is a good source of Child Ballad videos
