People are gathering in Princeton to remember the late folk singer Hazel Dickens.
West Virginia Public Broadcasting says services are set for 2 p.m. Tuesday at Seaver Funeral Home, with visitation an hour beforehand. She'll be buried in Roselawn Memorial Gardens.
Dickens was also a bluegrass musician who advocated for coal miners. She died last week at age 75.
Dickens grew up in Mercer County and left West Virginia as a teenager to follow siblings to Baltimore's shipyards and factories.
She got her start by playing music with others who'd left the mountains for work and became a fixture in the bluegrass circuit in the 1960s and 1970s with her partner, Alice Gerrard.
Her music was later featured in "Harlan County, USA," a 1976 Oscar-winning documentary about Kentucky coal miners.
