About the Author

Patrick Ward Gainer (1904-1981) was one of the leading scholars of Appalachian folk music in the mid-twentieth century. A member of the English faculty at West Virginia University, he taught an immensely popular course on Appalachian music that frequently showcased some of the leading practitioners of traditional Appalachian music as guest artists. He is the author of Witches, Ghosts, and Signs: Folklore of the Southern Appalachians, also available from WVU Press.


"Patrick Gainer used his platform as a professor at West Virginia University to advocate vigorously for the preservation and dissemination of Appalachian culture, supporting the work of leading traditional musicians by documenting and presenting their work to others. Decades after his death, his work remains vitally important."
Travis Stimeling, West Virginia University
