Event

Hicks Family
The Hicks Family of the Cumberland Plateau possesses in collective memory a quantity of ballads that includes many of the oldest and rarest ever kept in family tradition in the United States. Through a Tennessee Arts Commission Apprenticeship grant, siblings Daniel Hicks, Freeda Beaty, and Carmen Hicks McCord, all children of ballad singer Bessford Hicks, are passing on these songs and style to four young apprentices, including Hicks descendants Angela Bailey, Mack Bailey, and Erin Bailey, as well as family friend Summer Boyd. This unaccompanied style of singing is seldom presented today, and the beauty, tragedy, humor, and history in the songs makes their preservation an important and treasured Tennessee tradition.
