Judy Cook, Folksinger

Ghosts

A compelling Halloween journey and meet the ghosts, witches, and other supernatural beings that were known to your great-grandfathers, and their grandfathers before them. The songs and poems range from funny to serious (but never very scary); and from well-known favorites like “The Farmer’s Curst Wife” and “The Cremation of Sam McGee” to less familiar gems like “The Ghost’s Bride” and “The Ballad of the White Seal Maid.”
