Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie - KY Music Hall of Fame
Heartfelt congratulations to you, Jean. It comes as no surprise that such an award should be bestowed on one of the great people in the field of folk music. It was Jean's words of encouragement in an e-mail some years ago that caused me to keep on trying and not give up in my as yet feeble attempts at the banjo. It was her influence that casued me to build my lap dulcimer and learn to play it! Thanks a lot Jean! Banjer
