Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Friday, April 22, 2011


Hazel Dickens passed away today, taking a large piece of Americana with her.

Here, she and Mike Seeger join Kilby Snow in "Tragic Romance":

Here Hazel sings "A Few Old Memories":

And "West Virginia, My Home":

Her music reverberated over the years.  Here, "Coalminer's Grave" is used to mark last year's tragedy:

And from 1967, the haunting "Pretty Bird":

Hazel Dickens, born in poverty in West Virginia,  died today in Washington, aged 75.  May she continue singing with the angels.
