Subject: RE: Welcome to the 'Cat---JEAN RITCHIE
When I heard Madonna was marrying into royalty I figured Guy Ritchie must be related to Jean. What a wonderful thing for Mudcat to have such company drop in -- foremost traditional ballad singer, first lady of the dulcimer, custodian of the magnificent Ritchie family collection, co-founder of the Ritchie-Pickow collection at Galway, writer of some great contemporary folk songs... It's exciting to see the interest you've taken in these threads. And thanks for that wonderful Christmas gift to the world: "The Holly Carol" is one of the most joyous ever.
