MAD LOVE, MURDER & MAYHEM

FAVORITE ENGLISH & SCOTTISH BALLADS

At the end of the 19th century, Harvard professor Francis James Child published a collection of traditional English and Scottish ballads that would influence folk tradition and popular culture for decades to come. In his new book Mad Love, Murder & Mayhem, author Joshua Hampton collects 35 of those Child ballads that have become most widely known around the world. The 220-page volume features a plot summary, brief history, and list of selected recordings for each ballad. NOW AVAILABLE in paperback!
