British folk song tradition is rich in ballads featuring ghosts, fairies and otherworld occurrences. Here, English folk singer Jerry Bird presents an anthology of songs where magic is either the theme or is encoded in the lyrics. The songs are presented with sheet music for the musician, along with extensive notes on the songs' history, magical context, imagery, and possible origins.
