Today In Mountain Dulcimer History: 18 November 1975

1975 Corena (Rena) Loucinda Hicks Hicks (1899-1975) died. Rena was born to Andrew Jackson Hicks (1877-1949) and Susan Ann Presnell (1881-1951). She married her cousin, Nathan Tolbert Hicks when she was thirteen and Nathan was seventeen. Nathan Hicks was a noted dulcimer maker and player. I know that she performed with Nathan in the 1930s and/or 1940s but I don’t know if she sang or if she also played any instruments, such as the mountain dulcimer.
