Anglo-amerikanske folketoner og ballader /anglo-american folk songs and ballads

Som for alle folketoner kan det finnes flere versjoner av tekst og melodi for disse sangene fra USA og Storbritannia. Sangene har reist fra sted til sted over tid.
Både melodier og tekster har gjennomgått endringer underveis. Hver sanger tilfører gjerne noe av sin egenart og tradisjon til materialet.
Alfabetisk liste over anglo-amerikanske ballader

There may be several versions of lyrics and melody for these folk songs, as they often travelled from place to place through time.
Every singer will add some of their own way of singing and interpreting the songs.
Please note that all recordings are of considerably poorer quality than any professional recordings, as this is a strictly "home-made" product,
made primarily for learning purposes. Alphabetical list
