Yeah GSS.......I call it the Ritchie Family Voice as it came through them all with that same sound. Sandy Paton recorded Edna and her album is available on CD from Folk Legacy.

Her dulcimer work is different than Jean's in a way. She uses the dulcimer for embellishment and almost "punctuation" rather than accompaniment.

Get better Jean.....All the best still coming from southeast Ohio.
