Order “These Ozark Hills”
Order pre-release copies of Winter’s Bone CD
Is the song “I Wish I Was A Little Sparrow” available for purchase?
I absolutely love the soundtrack from Winter’s Bone but it’s missing this song.
I’ve been playing it day after day after day. ♥
dear mrs. sisco,
I have been trying to send you my paper but I don’t know if you have got it. Could you please let me know if you have recieved it.
Thanks so much for your beautiful music–a ray of hope in that harrowing film. My family on my dad’s side has lived in the Ozarks for several generations, and one of their most memorable stories is of the 13 Anderson kids, who, because their mom had died and their dad (my great grandpa) was good-for-nothing, built a house for themselves on a hillside, and it’s still standing. That film reminded me of the good that can survive, and I immediately bought it for my mom, my aunt, and my sister.
Didn’t you use to teach music at the local school? I went to Carmichael. Did you ever teach there. (I used poor grammer when writing this, just to keep the authenticity – lol).
Nope. I worked for The Quill as a reporter off and on for 20 years. That’s where you remember me from. Either that or you’re thinking about Marietta Derra, whom people used to confuse with me before she lost all that weight.
In answer to a recent post.. Play for us in Seattle! Place of choice would be the Tractor Tavern in Seattle Wa.
All booking info is at this link http://tractortavern.com/booking.asp.
I’ll pass this along to the agent, too. I know we’re coming to Seattle, but we haven’t heard anything about the venue yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Hello Miss Sisco,
I just finished watching the Movie…Winters Bone of course…and was amazed by your pure and perfect voice. Thank you !! I had to write to tell you that when I was young I listened to Maybelle Carter, ( Will the Circle Be Unbroken) and many more. You are a star! May God Bless you and your Band….and may you continue to impress, for many years to come.
YEEEE HAWWWWWWW for Bluegrass !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen to that, sister. Thanks for your kind words.
Hearing you in a movie theater in far away Paris, made my old American roots just tingle. Thanks for being the voice of so many and so much.
I am so glad to have met you and the gang at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. It was a wonderful concert and a real pleasure to have spoken with you, albeit briefly. I am terribly glad you will be getting home soon. If you continue to come around from time to time, I promise we will keep coming to see you!
Mrs. Sisco, I just wanted to thank you for what you do. I just watched Winter’s Bone and your singing has such a rare depth of feeling, it truly moved me (not an easy feat, mind you). Once again, I’m thankful for your craft and talent.
I just listened to Blackberry Winter and then listened to it again. Your voice is how I imagine an angel singing. The songs are so deeply spiritual and say so much about the life we are living today, the meaning of our experiences, and our feelings. It’s a very lovely album, the band and your singing are just extraordinary. Thank you.
I hope the interviews you were doing on your next project are going well and that you are in good health.

Thanks for your very kind words. It was an honor to meet you and spend time with you. Often when we think of people singled out by tragedy, they become iconic figures whose concerns are so far beyond ours that we can’t relate. Your warmth and human-ness were a great lesson to me, that people become iconic when they survive and are deepened by their experience, not because they are set apart. Thanks again for your kindness and openness in taking me into your house and sharing with me what must have been a shattering experience. It is a privilege to know you.
Hi there, I too watched Winters Bone last night here in Perth W Australia, good movie but fantastic music from Marideth & colleagues. Such a lovely voice this lady has, not many like her left I fear. Will be hounding my local music store for CD’s. We dont hear enough music like this any more – well done Merideth. Kind regards: Lyne
PS. ignore the UK detail on my email address, I dont know why its set up like that but it is !! L
I now am familiar with you because of Winter’s Bone. I have seen this movie just recently, and was deeply moved by it. Your music added the perfect finishing touch, to complete what was a powerful masterpiece in both music and film. You are a truly beautiful person. Keep doing what you are doing. One day, I would love to come visit your region of the world where you live…the Ozarks! I am from the Detroit, MI area, and have traveled extensively; but never to southern Missouri or northen Arkansas. I am just so fascinated with this region because of that movie!!!
Love to all!!!
