Subject: RE: Kytrad & Doc at Common Ground Fest
I saw her the next evening where she did a set ably assisted by her son Jon Pickow. An apology here or there from her for memory and for just having gotten over bronchitis and then the marvelous songs, stories and spoken words of one of the most marvelous performers, writers (music, lyrics and prose), collectors, storytellers and important figures in the folklore world EVER. Still a wonder and a National Treasure who has not only enriched us beyond measure with her regional and family heritage, but then had gon on to expand the horizons of English-speaking folklore even further with her subsequent work in the field.

As always, going beyond a mere concert and into a shared and enlightening experience, where you feel you've been briefly transported to different times and places you'll not soon forget, and where you feel you have been in the prescence of a friend.

Thank you once more, Jean!.....
