Subject: RE: Welcome to the 'Cat---JEAN RITCHIE

Even though I'm 27, I am still enough of a wide-eyed kid (in terms of my appreciation of the greats in music) to "be like, wow, man, far out... Jean Ritchie..."

Ms. Ritchie, I just finished re-reading "How Can I Keep From Singing?" (Seeger's autobio) and several books of and about trad and folk music, and sure enough, you recieve warm and loving mention in all of them. You are a gem. I am glad to know that you may even read this and smile.

May The Road Rise To Meet You,


P.S. Ms. Ritchie:

Just in case you ever care to say "Hi" (:0>
