It's time to add my bit to the 'Thanx' Back in 1976, my first tour in America, I was at the NY Pinewoods club spring weekend at Camp Freedman. Sandy & Caroline were there too, familiar in name to me but I had never yet seen or met them. My plan was to seek them out and introduce myself, say thanks for the Folk-Legacy albums I had. The plan proved unnecessary. Sandy came over to me, asked about a song, and 'How did I like America, talking as if we had known each other for years. Caroline did likewise. Within a few minutes I felt we really HAD known each other for years. By now, of course, we HAVE known each other for lots of years,but the feeling of warmth and undemanding friendship I got from them all that time ago has never diminished. If anything it has grown ever more cherished with the passing years. In a time when the folk scene has grown? into a spectator sport/industry it's reassuring to know that some people who recall the spirit of participation and fellowship that marked the early days of this revival are still active and holding on to those principles. I can think of no truer standard bearers than Sandy ans Caroline. I may be an atheist, but I say, 'God Bless 'Em'. BURL.

Wonderful, caring, warm, beautiful and a lovely sense of humor- I've met the Pattons briefly many times over the years. Thank you both for all you have done to share music and yourselves with us all. Keep it up. Love Lorraine

Hello you Folk Legacies! I didn't know this thread existed until now- that's why I haven't uttered- but you both know I love you...yet one wants to be included in The OFficial Thread. How many years? Let's not count, but haven't they been wonderful ones!!! Love, Jean P.S: Didn't know there were two t's in your name...? P.S.2: Just to "t's" you further- where did that name, "Golden Ring" come from?

From your song, Jean, of course! "Golden Ring Around My Susan Girl." Talking about people who have been an inspiration to us all, no one can match Jean Ritchie! Half of the songs we learned early on came from Jean's albums. The other half we dug out of Cecil Sharp's Appalachian collection, in which many of the songs were gathered from the Ritchie family. Then we got Jean's Singing Family of the Cumberlands (and if you haven't read it yet, do it now!). Recently, we got the "Field Trip" CD in which Jean matches songs with her informants in the British Isles. A great CD! Greenhaus at Camsco.com has it, of course.

While I'm giving thanks and praise, let me tell you how much we have enjoyed "Burl's" (that's Roy Harris, folks) songs and friendship over the years. Missed him last time he popped over from Wales, but we won't let that happen again. Such visits, brief as they may be, are too precious to miss an opportunity.

Folk-Legacy is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary, which will let some of you youngsters realize how ancient we who founded it are now. If you've never heard of us, well, that just tells you how lousy we've always been at the promotion end of the business. Making the recordings is the fun part; selling them turns it into work!

I thank you all!

Sandy Paton (with one less "t")

Well, since I wasn't around the 'Cat when this thread originated, I'll tardily add my voice to the chorus. Well said, everyone! Sandy and Caroline -- and we can't forget dear Lee Haggerty, who helped underwrite Folk Legacy 40 years ago -- are incomparable friends, to their host of friends, and to the folk music world as a whole. To Rick's initial list I need to add (from personal experience):

11. Rescuing 18-year-old Dutch girls from the clutches of the Calvinists. (ask Sandy sometime)

My life is richer for your friendship. Thanks for being there -- and here's to 40 more years! (The anniversary, by the way, is on Hallowe'en. Somebody should have a party...) Love to you, Kathy

I have to chime in here as well. My life is certainly richer because of Folk Legacy and most recently because I am lucky to call Sandy and Caroline dear friends. As Caroline said last month, "We feel as if we have known you forever and it's only been a year or two"

I feel that way as well, but in my case I *have* known the Patons forever from listening to Folk Legacy recordings for many years. There is a lot of teaching that goes on in those recordings and still much for me to learn.

Thanks,Sandy, for all that you do and have done in the name of music.
