Touting “You’re never too old to raise a little hell,”
the 90-year-old Doris “Granny D” Haddock in 2000 blazed a 3200-mile trail across America for campaign finance reform, precipitating the passage of the McCain-Feingold Act. She
continued her bipartisan reform efforts in countrywide voter registration drives, issuing her final challenge in 2010 at age 100: “Democracy is a running game. You huddle and you go back in. You keep going.”
Barbara Bates Smith, noted for her Off-Broadway adaptation and performance of
“Ivy Rowe” from Lee Smith’s Fair and Tender Ladies, has toured for twenty-five years with
the works of Lee Smith. For a decade, Jeff Sebens has accompanied her shows with   dulcimer, guitar, and banjo music.
