Hazel Dickens died yesterday. Her obituary was in the New York Times today. I always notice the women who rate an obit because there are not as many as for men. Dickens sang about the hard lives of the coal miners. Her voice was more mournful than Loretta Lynn, her songs had a harder edge than Dolly Parton. She sang in the movies Harlan County and Matewan. You can hear her sing here: Fire in the Hole. Her voice goes right through me.
