Thread Name: Jean Ritchie - KY Music Hall of Fame
Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie - KY Music Hall of Fame
My personal congratulations to you Jean. That is a great group of folks there to be with, but you stand out as extra special if for no other reason than the way you got there. You brought the living music of the mountains to so many and of course you are truly the Mother of the Appalachian Dulcimer. You and Bill Monroe brought about signal changes to two forms of music and your impact on folk has been beyond words. We thank you of course, but we here at the Mudcat have no Hall of Fame....But you know how happy we are to have you among us.....a true star in the mountain sky. Congratulations again on an honor you richly deserve.

Will you be at any ceremony they might be having?
