Annraoi, kytrad is the screen name of Jean Ritchie, the fabled American folksinger. She has been a Mudcatter for quite a while now and has graced us with her wit, wisdom, and knowledge on quite a number of occasions. She has, indeed, spent time with Sarah Makem, as well as any number of the greatest trad singers in several traditions. That is because she is among her peers when she does so. And she has never "hid her light under a bushel". My guess is she will answer your questions when she sees it.
She is, without question, one of the most important figures in folk music in the world today. And one of the finest people I have ever had the privilege to share communication with.
