Songs of Kentucky Women with Julia Purcell

This class meets on May 30th, June 6th, June 13th, and June 20th.

This 4-week class is for those interested in learning more about the influence of women in the vocal and instrumental music traditions of Kentucky.  We will learn from the recordings of Cousin Emmy, Addie Graham, Sarah Ogan Gunning, Lily May Ledford of the Coon Creek Girls, and Jean Ritchie. We will sing their original songs, traditional ballads, Appalachian spirituals, and social justice/protest songs.  We will cover about two songs per class. Some singing experience is recommended. 

Open to ages 15 and up.
