Thread Name: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
Subject: RE: Who is like Jean Ritchie?
Get the book. As much as I have always loved and appreciated this woman's singing, once I had read the story of her life and her family, the enjoyment was enhanced geometrically. Alex, you simply must get the Smithsonian Folkways recording of Jean and Doc Watson live from Folk City. This is one of the seminal concert recordings in our genre. And I second, third and fourth the recommendations above. But if you want to know our Jean, get the book. She is a wonderful human being.
