Editor's note: looking at the picture of this grandmotherly type you'd never know that she was a notorious rebel but it's true. The music is, however, quite more than I expected seeing as she's known for being a folk pioneer and this sounds more like a popular song catalog from the mid 1900s. Anyhow, it's something different than the normal fare of strange instrumental and oddities that often get posted here.
