Jean Ritchie: "Mother of Folk"


       Jean Ritchie is a folk singer and Appalachian dulcimer player, who was born in 1922. Known as the "mother of folk", her style is that of a true mountain woman, who has embraced an artistic lifestyle through her music and her style. Her pinned back hair, crisp cotton dresses, and simple silhouettes are what make Jean Ritchie one of my biggest style inspirations to this day.
