Jean Ritchie.

Hear from a broad assortment of folk musicians as they celebrate Jean Ritchie (1922-2015) by singing the songs she taught them and passing along their wisdom. Much of this week's music comes from the commemorative compilation record Dear Jean, which includes tributes from Robin and Linda Williams, Peggy Seeger, Kathy Mattea, John McCutcheon and many of the late singer's friends.
