Subject: RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
The first time I knowingly met Jean was at a Long Island Traditional Music Association concert [not hers]. We chatted for a while and she offered to swap a copy of Singing Family of the Cumberlands for a copy of my book, Songs of South Street--Street of Ships. I treasure her gift and the correspondence we shared over the years on Mudcat.
