The Poetry Podcast with Lance Pierson

In our 13th programme Lance reads four Ballads, and there is one traditional song.  The song is ‘The Ballad of Barbara Allen’.  The traditional Ballads are ‘Sir Patrick Spens’ and ‘Get up and Bar the Door’.  The literary Ballads are John Keats’ ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’ and Charles Causley’s ‘Ballad of the Bread Man’.
