One of the great English popular art forms, the folk song can be satirical, erotic, painful, dramatic, rueful or funny. This acclaimed new collection brings together all the classic folk songs as well as many lesser-known discoveries, encompassing everything from sea voyages to lovers' laments, rural traditions to raucous pleasures.
