Dorothy Carter

We are very sad to say that our beloved friend and mentor Dorothy Carter died on Saturday 7th of June 2003 of a stroke. She was 68 and will be sorely missed on many levels as friend, songwriter, instrumentalist and out and out party girl. Our thoughts and love are with Dorothy's family - Justin, Celeste and her grandson, Damien.

When it was new I bought Dorother's first lp, which I think was called 'Troubadour' (circa. 1978) and I really love her solo psaltery pieces and other instrumental music. Like many of the rest of us, she played music on the street in the Boston area back in the late 1970's. She seemed a quiet mystic then so when she began backing up a troup of very-outgoing young women I was rather amazed. Did anyone of you every hear Dorothy performing in that role? I only saw evidence of it on the web and so joined the Mediaeval Baebes message list out of interest in Dorothy's intense solo music.
