Folk-songs of the South : collected under auspices of West Virginia Folk-lore Society by John Harrington Cox( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Folk-Songs of the South: Collected Under the Auspices of the West Virginia Folk-Lore Society is a collection of ballads and folk-songs from West Virginia. First published in 1925, this resource includes narrative and lyric songs that were transmitted orally, as well as popular songs from print sources. Through 186 ballads and songs and 26 folk tunes, this collection archives a range of styles and genres, from English and Scottish ballads to songs about the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, the opening of the American West, and boat and railroad transportation. It includes children's play-party and dance music, songs from African American singers, and post--Civil War popular music. The original introduction by Cox contains vibrant portraits of the singers he researched, with descriptions of performance style and details about personalities and attitudes. With an introduction by Alan Jabbour, this edition renews the importance of this text as a piece of scholarship, revealing Cox's understanding of the workings of tradition across time and place and his influence upon folk-song research."--Publisher's description
