Excerpt from The English and Scottish Popular Ballads, Vol. 2 This ballad and the two which follow it are clearly not of the same use, and not meant for the same ears, as those which go before. They would come down by professional rather than by domestic tradition, through minstrels rather than knitters and weavers. They suit the hall better than the bower, the tavern or public square better than the cottage, and would not go to the Spinning-wheel at all. An exceedingly good piece of minstrelsy The Boy and the Mantle' is, too; much livelier than most of the numerous variations on the somewhat overhandled theme.

The Great Ballad Tradition of Scotland is one of the most important influences on the folk songs of the English-speaking world. The descendants of the old Scottish ballads appear in countless variants in England, Canada, Australia and the United States. Now Ewan MacColl, himself raised in this tradition, has drawn on this great wealth of tradition to fashion an outstanding collection of Scottish folk songs and ballads. Here are 70 songs,complete with words,music, historical notes, and appropriate guitar chords (supplied by Peggy Seeger). Documentary illustrations and a glossary of the Scottish idioms employed help to make this a book that is both useful to the musician and singer, and a fine work of art as well.
