Subject: RE: KYTRAD's a winner!
Thanks, folks... I have been too stunned to write about this, ever since the first phone call from Barry Bergey some weeks ago. He asked me not to speak of it until press-release time, but since I found it such a shock, I'm STILL not talking much about it. But you're all becoming good friends, and as you know you're all welcome to the "Party" on September 20th. Don't know just where, or any more of the details yet, but I understand it's open to all, "a free concert," as Kathy says. Hotels are expensive, but maybe the Greater Washington Folksong people will make room for sleeping bags in their back gardens? Thank you all for your good wishes and congrats. Personally, I think I'm getting attention this year because everyone thinks I'm gettin on in years, and might start "shufflin off the mortal coil" any minute! Love to all, Jean
