Ballads derive Ballads derive from the medieval French chanson balladée or ballade, which were originally dancing songs. Ballads were particularly characteristic of the popular poetry and song of the British Isles from the later medieval period until the 19 century and used extensively across Europe and later the Americas, Australia and North Africa. Many ballads were written and sold as single sheet broadsides. The form was often used by poets and composers from the century onwards to produce lyrical ballads.
