In this final segment of our Sense of Community series on Debt in the Ozarks, we’re turning back a few pages in our history books to examine what shaped our area’s perception on debt—and whether that perception is at all unique because of this history. KSMU's Jennifer Davidson brings us more.
Marideth Sisco is known in these parts for many things: she's the singer for The Blackberry Winter Band, which rose to fame after its work with the Oscar-winning film "Winter's Bone." She's a folklorist and Ozarks storyteller. But she's also near and dear to the KSMU family: she writes our popular series These Ozarks Hills. Right now, Marideth Sisco is in the midst of cancer treatments. And artists around the region are gathering tomorrow (Sat, 9/28) at the Yellow House Community Arts Center in West Plains for her sake. Jennifer Davidson sat down with one of the event’s organizers, and has this interview to share.
