Hope you have a lovely day, surrounded by friends and family.
And a huge thank you for all your wonderful music, and your tireless dedication.

We've never met, but I've known you for nigh on fifty years because of your music and sometimes your politics. What an honour it has been.

Happy Birthday, Jean.

Somewhere around 45 years or so back, Jean was at the Hindmann Settlement School and I saw and heard the real meaning of "authentic." A small group of us had come down from Berea and we all went back with a very new feeling about some very old music. Thanks for it all Jean.......and Happy Birthday!

Dear Jean,

Lots of love and good wishes to you from your friends in Berkeley, Larry Hanks and Deborah Robins. We fondly remember our time together with you in Long Island, just a couple short years ago, with Oscar, Jon, and, of course, George. You tickled me so by singing "A gentleman came to our house..." which I hadn't heard since childhood, when you sang it at the Chicago folk festival. Larry and I are still hoping to come visit you in Kentucky. We always enjoy performing your "Old Woman and the Pig" aka, "The Wedding Song" so much, we put it on our last album, "No Hiding Place". We'll be sending you our new album very soon. You've always got a special place in our hearts.

Love from Deborah & Larry Hanks

Happy Birthday, Jean, Dear One. You remain one of my heroines and I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with music, family, and friends, even those of us who only know you "virtually." Thanks for being here and for ALL you have shared over the years. It is an honour to *know* you and I am gratefull.

Happy birthday, Jean. I met you and your husband several years ago at a festival Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly arranged in Rhode Island. I remember the slides you showed. I am glad I got to hear you perform in person.
