Thread Name: Obit: Ginni Clemmens 2003
Subject: RE: Obit: Ginni Clemmens
This is really sad news. Ginni did a workshop on playing for/with children at OTSFM which was a turning point for me. I learned just about everything off of her children's album. My tape of her other album (LP having long since bit the dust) is one I put on all the time when I need to space out -- her version of "Loping along through the cosmos" brings me back into balance every time.
She, along with Jean Ritchie and the Armstrongs, helped me learn to relax and "play" while playing -- ie, get over the "I'm performing and I'm being judged" hangup.
I've often wondered what had become of her. I'm glad she lived in a beautiful place.
