Helen Schneyer was a folksinger and psychotherapist who spent much of her life living in and around Washington, D.C. On Ballads, Broadsides and Hymns, Schneyer sings a diverse selection of revival hymns, ballads, mining songs and more in her distinctive and powerful contra-alto voice. Though at times accompanied by fiddles or other voices, Ballads, Broadsides and Hymns gives the listener space to appreciate the nuance and depth of Schneyer's unique singing.
