Anne Neilson Ronnie Gilbert queen of folk (44) RE: Ronnie Gilbert queen of folk 10 Dec 11

And apologies to Elmore -- I must have assumed that he was the original poster from his leap to defend the lady herself.

I have endless admiration for RG and count her as one of my major influences -- along with such giants as Jeannie Robertson, Lizzie Higgins et al.

And I have a fond memory of a great TV documentary featuring Ronnie and Holly Near -- and an astonishing song about 'the Disappeared' in South America (ashamed to say that I can't reliably remember whether or not it's about Chile -- but some other 'catter will sort me, please!). The interaction between the two singers - separated by several decades of experience - was magical to witness.
