Thread Name: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
Subject: RE: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
All the singers of the old songs are unique in their own beautiful way, but start by listening to
Almeda (Granny) Riddle
Sheila K. Adams
Texas Gladden
Maggie Hammons Parker
Sheila Stewart
Jeannie Robertson
All of Jean's recordings are priceless, but the Folkways albums of her family's versions of the Child Ballads are AWESOME.
