Sources for Traditional Songs

The advent of the computer and the work of dedicated traditional music fans has recently made it easy to download texts and tunes for Anglo-American ballads and songs from the Web.   It is also easy to get help locating that popular folk song you heard years ago but can’t quite remember.  The Mudcat Cafe website, a resource for all things folk, now hosts the Digital Tradition.  DigiTrad is  the free internet source for thousands of songs and tunes.  Warning: use of Digital Tradition may be habit forming!
