Subject: RE: Welcome to the 'Cat---JEAN RITCHIE
Jean Ritchie is one of our national treasures. Some of the most joyful and moving moments of my life have included seeing her on a Pete Seeger PBS show about thirty years ago, getting my first album by her ("Clear Waters Remembered"), finally seeing her peform in person about 19 years ago, recently e-mailing her and getting a warm and prompt reply, introducing a young friend to her music just this month and seeing the magic take effect. God bless and keep you, Jean Ritchie! And know that the old songs are constantly finding a new audience.
