Subject: RE: Welcome to the 'Cat---JEAN RITCHIE
I saw her in person about 25-35 years ago. I was a smallish child, I don't remember where we were, what the season was, with whom I was - or anyone else who sang... there were several stages, you could wander around, and the only reason I even remember that is that the one thing I *do* remember is hearing this voice, stopping my wandering, and just listening to her till she finished, not just that song but yielded the stage. I remember her name because we had a holiday carol album of hers on vinyl. I've never forgotten about hearing her at that folk festival or whatever it was... I am honored to count myself among such company.
