Ritchie was born in Viper, Kentucky to a family that preserved and sang many old time (mountain) songs -- many dating back to England and Scotland -- numbering by Ritchie's count to well over 300. Raised within the Appalachian-based musical tradition, Ritchie graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1946, after which she moved to New York City as a social worker. While there, she became involved in the emerging folk revival scene, performing the old family songs on her dulcimer and autoharp. She recorded for the newly-created Elektra Records, starting in 1952. By the 1960s, she was a well-respected and sought after performer and authority of Appalachian music. For other Ritchie recordings, see reels T77-262 and T79-1.
