Hazel Dickens Passes

Bluegrass pioneer singer and songwriter, Hazel Dickens, passed away Thursday April 21. In the words of Bluegrass historian and performer Bob Artis, "Sad news; there was never a more passionate
singer nor better songwriter in all of traditional music".


The You Tube videos below, provide a brief bio of this elegant lady.
Some of my favorite memories are of her appearances at the Elizabeth Moose Lodge.
