Bawdy Ballads and Far-fetched Folklore


A class project that remains after the fact, this site is a collection of the ballads and folk tales of the N.C. mountains. "Bawdy Ballads and Far-fetched Folklore" takes its material from the Wilson Library collection, including RealAudio versions of such infamous songs as "Charlotte the Harlot" and RealVideo from the 1997 N.C. State Fair talent competition. This site also contains traditional 'Jack Tales' and an interactive section where you can contribute to a group tale or Mad Lib a southern yarn.
