Balladeer, storyteller and clawhammer banjo player Sheila Kay Adams learned the songs of Appalachia in the old, familiar way. A great aunt sang her ballads one line at a time, repeating each line until Adams knew it by heart. Now she’s passing along the tradition in her own way, serving as technical advisor and singing coach for the film Songcatcher and touring a program of traditional music and storytelling.
