Folk songs

 We started a new D&D campaign Saturday, with Scott DMing. One of my characters is a bard/beguiler, and playing a bard always reawakens my interest in folk music. To top it off, a  bandit leader of whom we've heard is called  Black Jack Davy. Naturally I had to dig out our Steeleye Span CDs and play that song this morning.

I'm currently on a search for sheet music. According to a helpful site on (Mostly) English Folk Music, all the Steeleye Span song books are out of print. Sigh. I have found a couple of very useful sites about English folk music. One is at the ever-useful Sacred Texts site, giving the complete text of the Child Ballads and the other is the Roud Folksong Index.
