Join Aubrey in celebrating the 100th birthday of the late, great Jean Ritchie. When Aubrey drove to Hindman, Kentucky in 1992 to meet Jean, she never imagined they would become longtime friends and collaborators and that she would research Jean's life and music for decades. Jean Ritchie, the person primarily credited with introducing the mountain dulcimer to the wider music world in the mid-20th century, was a fascinating singer and curator of her eastern Kentucky family songs. She was also a beautiful songwriter, author, performer, scholar, and activist. Aubrey will share personal stories and a brief timeline of Jean's long career, and demonstrate some of Jean's tunings and songs as well as her unique method of using the dulcimer as a harmony voice. Live performance, video and audio clips, photos, and a Q & A will all be part of the program. Join us for this glimpse into the world of one of America's most fascinating folk singers and mountain dulcimer players!
