Mimi Pickering

Mike Seeger and Hazel Dickens
Mike Seeger

Hazel Dickens: It's Hard to Tell the Singer from the Song (2001), by Mimi Pickering, portrays a pioneering individualist in American music. The film's music and interviews establish the roots of Dickens's career in bluegrass, as well as her strong pro-worker and pro-women musical activism. Mike Seeger (1933 - 2009) is a wonderful presence in the film (see stills, above).
