A Sense of Place: Border Ballads set in Context by Lucy Macrae

Border ballad scholar Lucy Macrae, of Edinburgh University, has just posted an interesting article about Walter Scott and the sense of place, in Border balladry.

Musicians studying Border ballads, or indeed Scottish traditional song, will find very much the same kind of thing in early Victorian collections of songs 'with their airs', ie, music collections.
