Irish and Appalachian Ballads and Whiskey Songs
This chapter examines the movement of folk texts across cultural and political boundaries in Ireland and the arrival and persistence of these texts in the southern Appalachian Mountains. It considers two strains of Appalachian music—the ballad (or narrative folk song) and the whiskey song—and argues that Irish influences cannot be discarded when considering the roots of these traditions.
