Dear Jean
Happy 90th birthday.
I came to your music through a meandering route, from being an english folks singer and lover of ballads, learning about Cecil Sharp's visit to the Appalachian area and learning about the musical legacy of the Ritchie family. Finding your singing and music inspired me to learn dulcimer and inspired my partner to try his hand at building some too. You are such a gracious and generous lady; thanks so much for a lifetime of music and sharing. I hope your birthday is full of love and laughter, and music.
