Josephine McGill was an authority on the songs of the Southern Appalachians. Her 1917 book Folk Songs of the Kentucky Mountains contains many of the ballads she had researched, much in the manner of Bartók in his preservation of Hungarian folk songs. This might explain the aura of folk melody which imbues Duna with such charm. It dates from 1914.
