Hi,

Just returned from KY Music Weekend tonight, and had a chance to talk to Jean about some of the music on her re-release. "Rattling Bog", one of our favorite songs, I discovered was one of the songs she researched on her Fullbright Scholarship tour. I found out more in 5 minutes from her than I had learned in the 5 years of performing this song!
Wonderful lady, and I'm always in awe of her knowledge and humor. I am going to run back over there tomorrow and pick up this CD!
(Jean, you are reading this, your set was wonderful.)
