Subject: RE: Welcome to the 'Cat---JEAN RITCHIE
Ms. Ritchie:
As a life long folkie, born into an Irish ballad family, I have number of times when traditions have come alive for me... reading your wonderful book was one, seeing you at Cooper Union with Oscar Brand was another, now that all said, welcome to this little party of mad folk. Irreverant and articulate, the muck and mire fly as fast as the gems, and all equally fun, I hope... Welcome to the table.
PS Did you know Oscars late friend Thomas Scott, who played with Woody Guthrey? Thom died in the early 60's. I used to play in a trio with his daughter Suki.
