Jean Ritchie

While I was going to Cumberland College between 1966 to 1970 (now the University of the Cumberlands), in Williamsburg, Jean Ritchie was a yearly entertainer during Chapel in Gatlin Hall. She would speak to us a little bit about her Kentucky upbringing that reminded me a lot of my mother who, was the last child of 15 and grew up in Red Bird, Kentucky. Then Jean would start playing her dulcimer and sing the most beautiful, haunting, Kentucky folk songs.
