GUEST,Andymac Is kytrad okay? Jean Ritchie UPDATE 30 Jan.2010 (310* d) RE: Is kytrad okay? Jean Ritchie hospitalized 12 Jan 10


I've never met Jean but a few years ago, there was a thread regarding "The L & N" and I commented that I'd always thought it traditional and couldn't praise it more highly than that.
Jean replied and we shared a few PMs.
I was amazed that such a respected luminary would even take notice of anything I'd said. but I've realised that this sort of little incident is why she is so respected.

It isn't her music, which is superb, nor her tradition-bearing status, which is impeccable; but it's because of her humility and humanity and decency, all of which are what make her so important as a mentor and role model for us all.

Get well soon
