Farmer's Curst Wife
See details
performed by Pete Seeger, 1919-2014; in American Ballads (Folkways Records, 1957), 3 mins
This collection reminds us that the ballad's purpose, first and foremost, is to tell a story. These songs narrate tales of ordinary people—hoboes and lovers and sailors—and their extraordinary deeds. From "John Henry" to "Lady Margaret," Pete Seeger's expressive style is ideally communicative.
