Jean Redpath

Singer Jean Redpath first travelled from Scotland to the United States in 1961 and was soon immersed in the American folk scene. Since then, she has performed throughout the world, released over forty recordings, and won the hearts of public radio listeners through her many appearances on A Prairie Home Companion. Host Fiona Ritchie met up with Redpath to reminisce about five decades of sharing song.
