June 3: Songs from the Mountains with Judy Cook
Judy weaves together songs and ballads collected in southern Appalachian Mountains and the Ozarks into a cohesive whole. She tells the story of songs that traveled from Britain to the mountains of America. Through years of oral transmission, they were influenced by the landscape and by folks from other countries who settled or passed through. The ancient ballads are fairy tales for adults with their implied warnings against jealousy, injudicious alliances, or complacency with nature. Yet they are often expressed with a lively good humor.
