English folksong collector and researcher during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As one of the founding members of the Folk-Song Society and editor of the Folk Song Journal, she was one of the main influences on the English folk revival of that period. She was an accomplished singer, composer, piano accompanist, and amateur poet. She was much sought after as a song and choral singing adjudicator at music festivals throughout England, and was also one of the founders of the Leith Hill Music Festival in Surrey.

Sy Scholfield quotes "In Search of Song: The Life and Times of Lucy Broadwood" by Dorothy De Val (Ashgate, 2011), pp. 14-15: "In July, late in Juliana's pregnancy, the family went on extensive travels in the Highlands, though Kathy and Miss Ainger returned to help Juliana on 8 August, just in time for the birth of 'little Lucy' the following day at 2 pm. Her birth was recorded by Bertha, but not by Juliana in her day book."
