Elizabeth Stewart

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter turns to Elizabeth Stewart’s Aunt Lucy. Lucy was the fifth child born out of fourteen children to Betty and Jimmsy Stewart. Unlike Elizabeth’s mother, Jean Stewart, Lucy had formal musical training. Lucy, however, had the advantage of picking up traditional music from her mother and the rest of her family. She had a lot of love and respect for the songs, stories, and traditions of the family. She was later regarded somewhat as a guardian of that tradition as much as she was the guardian for the family. The chapter reflects on the life of Elizabeth’s Aunt Lucy, recalling memories of her aunt’s singing and playing, and meditating on the character and talent of Elizabeth’s musically gifted aunt, who would later be honored by her niece when she sang her own version of the ballad The Battle o Harlaw.
