Jean Ritchie

Jean Ritchie, the Kentucky-born folksinger who brought the centuries-old ballads she grew up with to a wide audience from the 1950s onward, died Monday evening. 

It’s time for our preview of weekend events with Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald Leader.  Rich tells WEKU’s John Hingsbergen that, among the options for this holiday weekend, is a dark comedy opening Sunday at Balagula Theatre.
