"These Ozark Hills" - Telling Missouri's Stories

7/10/2013 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

Noted singer and storyteller Marideth Sisco will be the second person to appear in Missouri State Museum’s summer program series “Telling Missouri's Stories.” Listed in her official bio as a veteran journalist, teacher, author, musician, student of folklore and creator of Elder Mountain Press, Sisco received acclaim for her music in the Oscar-nominated film Winter’s Bone. She will be sharing stories, and perhaps a song or two, about the Missouri Ozarks of yesterday. Click here to read the news release.
