Thread Name: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
Subject: RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015)
I got to know Jean after seeing a Mudcat post about a picnic she was hosting, and that has led to some truly amazing experiences of her warmth, music and generosity. I wrote about that picnic and the Dear Jean CD in this Huffington Post piece. There's a few pictures, too, including photos from the last two songs she ever performed, at the concert we did in Kentucky last year. What a privilege to have played a small role in someone's life who made such a large difference in mine.
