Susanna "Granny Sue" Holstein is one of our many favorite tellers from the Applachian Mountains. Although her focus is on Appalachian culture, her repertoire includes songs and ballads, world folktales, family stories, and audience interactive pieces. Granny Sue is also an active blogger, a published writer, event speaker, and has conducted many workshops. In this episode, you will hear an interview with the wonderful Granny Sue and the stories & ballads "Pretty Polly", "Gracie's Cabin", "Burnt House", "Railroad Boy."
