Thread Name: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
Subject: RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
Many years ago (20? 25?) Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly put together a small folk festival in Rhode Island featuring singers of songs and tellers of stories from the Appalachian region. That was my only chance to be at one of Jean's performances and to speak briefly to her and George. I was glad that I was available that weekend.

My sympathy to Jean's family, friends, and fans.
