Marideth Sisco

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.
