|Ritchie With Ritchie|
Fiona and Jean Ritchie at the Swannanoa Gathering
Jean Ritchie, a treasure of American music, is credited with having revived interest in the Appalachian dulcimer. She was also a songwriter, singer, song collector and author.
Hear clips from a Ritchie reunion, attended by an intimate audience at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina, all attending the Swannanoa Gathering summer music camp. Audience members were invited to ask Jean some questions to round out the time we spent together.
Hope you enjoy these exclusive extras from a very special radio program.
