Death of a Ballad Singer

The imagery refers to Bosch's "Death of a Miser" - only in a formal sense, as there could not have been a more charming or generous ballad teacher than Chapel. He was in his late 80s when I met him, ostensibly to record his singing for the Berea College traditional music archives.
