Episode #1604
Celebration of The Music of Jean Ritchie
Jean Ritchie is the songwriter many refer to as "The Mother of Folk" and the Princess of Appalachia. She was born in Viper, Kentucky, the youngest of 14 children. Ritchie grew up immersed in the traditional songs of the region and moved to New York in the 1940s where, as a social worker, she taught music to children. She launched the folk movement of the 1960's along with Pete Seeger, Oscar Brand, Woody Guthrie and Alan Lomax. Ritchie's songs have been recorded by a variety of artists including Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash and Judy Collins. Over the course of her career, her song collecting and song writing has helped to preserve the musical legacy of her Kentucky home, as well as expand awareness of its challenges through her continued support of the grassroots environmental organization Appalachian Voices and politically pointed songs such as "The L & N" and "Black Waters". Our friends at Compass Records have released a new multi-artist CD in honor of Jean, who now lives in Berea. 'Dear Jean: Artists Celebrates Jean Ritchie' is a double album featuring performances from an impressive array of Ritchie's fans and admirers. Many of these artists performed on this Special Event Broadcast of WoodSongs including: Jon Pickow (traditional folk musicians and Jean's son), Dan Schatz (producer and folksinger), Elizabeth LaPrelle (mastery of the ancient and deep-art of Appalachian unaccompanied singing), Al, Alice and Ruth (from the McLain Family Band) and other surprise guests. It will be an evening of stories, art and music to honor the living legacy of this Kentucky-born singer/songwriter and folk icon.

Episode #1605
Ellis Paul and Socks in The Frying Pan
Ellis Paul is a master songwriter and storyteller with captivating vocals. He emerged out of the Boston music scene during a time when contemporary folk was beginning to come into the mainstream. Now, with 20+ years of playing 150 to 200 shows annually, 19 record releases, fifteen Boston Music Awards, a documentary film, a book of poems/short stories, an award winning children's book project, as well as songs featured on Hollywood soundtracks, he makes Boston's music scene proud. Ellis's new album, 'Chasing Beauty', is a set of songs which detail, in typical Paul fashion, stories of people and places that reflect larger truths about us all. Socks In The Frying Pan are a trio of talented traditional Irish Musicians based in Co. Clare in the West of Ireland. Having gained a fan-base from four years of gigging around the west of Ireland, this exciting group have recently started branching out and have been well received for their modern traditional style and energetic approach to music.

Episode #1606
Donna The Buffalo and Eliza Rickman
Donna The Buffalo's feel-good, groove-oriented, danceable and often socially conscious music all began over twenty years ago with roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric Americana mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country. Donna the Buffalo is known for touring the country remaining fiercely independent as one of the industry's most diverse roots-music bands. The band just released their 10th studio album 'Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday'. Eliza Rickman's presence on stage-whether she wears flowers in her hair, or stuffed birds; whether she plays a toy piano or a grand piano-is an enveloping, soft darkness, impossible to ignore. It is quite a surprise that Rickman didn't even realize she could sing until after she earned a degree in orchestration from Azusa Pacific University, because her voice is the most enthralling and salient feature of any on the tracks from her new album 'O, You Sinners'. And this is saying something, considering her deftness as a pianist and her subtlety as a composer. Fans of Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent, and Andrew Bird will not want to miss her unique performance.
