Ray Hicks 1: My Life - I've Traveled the Mountains

Hicks, Ray 1: My Life - I've Traveled the Mountains

Although you'd have never heard him or any of his kinfolk admit it, Ray Hicks was a living legend. By telling stories and singing old folk ballads, with and without his harmonica, Ray brought joy and a feeling of "country" and "down home" to countless thousands of children and adults. Here, in this non-narrated biography, viewers get to see the famed storyteller, learn about his life, see where and how he lived, meet his wife, Rosa, hear them sing a tune or two together, and view the great storyteller as he performed at the world-famous National Storyteller's Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. 03/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
