Synopsis

Album Description
Sporting one of the longest careers in the history of folk music in America,Jean Ritchie has been quietly influencing generations of folk, country and popular music performers for almost 60 years. Her contributions are immeasurable, as summed up by the recent PBS documentary "Mountain Grown, The Jean Ritchie Story." An early advocate of Bob Dylan and an influential force on the early Greenwich Village folk scene, New Englander Paul Clayton remains one of the folk world's greatest treasures. It seems very appropriate that these two disparate forces - the New England Yankee and the southern mountain woman, each champions of the folk movement in their own right - would be paired for this unique recording of folk tales and songs. Heard here in duet and solo, thesongs are tied together with folk tales recited by Richard Chase (1904 - 1988),who has been called the man "most responsible for the renaissance of Appalachian storytelling." Finally, this groundbreaking classic slice of Americana is available on CD for the first time.
