Mtn. Talk: Stories and Songs of Jean Ritchie

Mtn. Talk: Stories and Songs of Jean Ritchie

We’re starting 2018 off right here at WMMT with this re-broadcast of an hour long program of stories and songs of the late great Jean Ritchie! Jean Ritchie was a folk musician, ballad singer and songwriter – well known for her dulcimer playing. Ritchie was born and raised just up the road from WMMT in Viper, KY. She is dearly missed, but we’re grateful her legacy lives on through recordings and words such as those in this week’s edition of Mountain Talk.  This program is a re-broadcast, originally aired in June of 2015 just after Ritchie passed away at the age of 92.
