Thread Name: Jean Ritchie Field Trip
Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie Field Trip
Two comments I didn't address: Sinsull- I think that the Robert Burns singer is Jean Redpath, and thanks for the comparison! She's a fine singer and good friend, and her initials ARE JR...

Susan of DT- ALMOST the same title, but not quite. Jean Ritchie Field Trip was the first effort, all work done by ourselves, and we called our "label" Collector Limited Editions (very fancy!). The Folkways series came later. We had readied a series of three 12" lps: Field Trip Ireland, Field Trip England, and Field Trip Scotland. The first two were issued by Folkways,on the Scottish one we lost our steam and never put it out. Still have the master, though, so maybe someday... Smithsonian/Folkways should be able to supply the Irish and the English ones as special make-up CDs, if anyone wants to have them.
