Huntingdon, Gayle and Lani Herrmann. Sam Henry’s “Songs of the People”.
Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1990
Sam Henry authored a column in the Northern Constitution, a provincial newspaper published in Northern Ireland between 1929 and 1939. Henry’s columns were devoted to the publication of traditional songs, with annotations, and are thus a continuation of the work done by the earlier collectors.
