Nearly 25 years ago, the Dusing Singers did a highly successful recording of the works of noted Kentucky folk singer and composer Jean Ritchie. Considered a leading proponent of traditional folk music, Ritchie is also credited with popularizing the Dulcimer. David Dusing asked Robert de Cormier, Gil Robbins, Jon and Peter Pickow (Ritchie's sons) and David Ralph to join him in writing the arrangements, giving the music a variety of colors. Today, David Dusing hopes to collaborate with Jon and Peter Pickow on a new recording of Jean's compositions combining some of her poetry. This live recording will incorporate the audience as part of the concert. David, Jon and Peter hope to showcase the beauty and poetry of Jean's works, while imbuing them with a new energy for a new time.
