A Musical Tribute to Jean Richie

October 13, 2016, 8:00pm

This convocation is inspired by the release of the album From Mountain to Mountain, a tribute to Jean Ritchie, the Appalachian “Mother of Folk,” by traditional Irish singer Mary McPartlan. The concert brings together a New York jazz trio—Bertha Hope (piano) with Shirazette Tinnin (percussion), and Kim Clarke (electric bass)—with Appalachian musicians, Al and Alice White, Sam Gleaves, Deborah Thompson, Montana Hobbs, and Linda Jean Stokley.  The concert marks the beginning of the 43rd annual Celebration of Traditional Music. Stephenson Memorial Concert.
