Thread Name: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
Subject: RE: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
Catspaw, are you on some federal grant to spread misinformation about Mississippi? Shelby Foote was from Greenville, Truman Capote New Orleans, William Faulkner was born in New Albany but lived much of his life in Oxford, Miss., and Harper Lee was an Alabaman. Sorry to digress from the heart of the thread, but so many people use the 'cat as an information source I hated to see a whole pile of off-center information go into the record...

Adding my admiration for Jean Ritchie and thanks to everyone for posting book titles and other people to listen to, good sources for exploring 'real' music.
