Witches and War-Whoops: Early New England Ballads

This album brings together a sinister and unusual collection of songs about the 1692 Salem Witch Trials, collected and performed by John Allison. The somber melody reflects the solemn lyrics that recount evil and punishments: "They hanged this weary woman then like a felon stout; Her white hairs on the cruel rope were scattered all about.
