    Picture this American scene: two friends rolling down I-40 somewhere outside Nashville, singing out the open window. The backseat is a jumble of guitars, boots, takeaway plates from a roadside BBQ, and paperback books. But the song? The song goes like this: "As I walked out over London Bridge, on a misty morning early..." And the books? A five-volume set of The English and Scottish Popular Ballads--the Child Ballads (For the uninitiated, these aren't kids' songs--they're a nineteenth century anthology named after their collector, Sir Francis James Child). The friends are Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer, two songwriters who coarranged a selection of epic old folk songs from across the Atlantic for their current release Child Ballads. http://anaismitchell.com/ http://www.jeffersonhamer.com/
