The 37 track, 2-CD set features performances from an impressive array of Ritchie’s fans and admirers, all of whom have come together to honor the living legacy of the Kentucky-born singer/songwriter many refer to as "The Mother of Folk." Contributors were intentionally selected to represent the diversity of genres and generations Ritchie has influenced throughout her life, with classic artists like Pete Seeger, Judy Collins, Janis Ian, Kathy Mattea, Tim O’Brien, Robin and Linda Williams, Oscar Brand, and Dale Ann Bradley sharing the spotlight with up and coming talents like the Starry Mountain Singers, Rachael Davis, and Matt Brown. Standout tracks include “The L&N Don’t Stop Here Anymore” (Robin and Linda Williams), “I’ve Got a Mother” (The Starry Mountain Singers), “Black Waters” (John McCutcheon, Kathy Mattea, Suzy Bogguss, Tim O’Brien), “Morning Come, Maria’s Gone” (Janis Ian) and “One I Love” (Judy Collins). There is also a spoken word version of “I Celebrate Life” from Pete Seeger, one of his last recordings followed by a wonderful version of Pretty Betty Martin played by Kathy Reid-Naiman.
