Subject: BS: Ritchie/Pickow Family
From: GUEST,Jean
Date: 11 Feb 11 - 11:58 AM

Hello to all,

It's been so long since I posted a message that I can't remember my old password.

I wanted to tell everyone that I'm well. As many of you know, George died in December, and I miss him. We all miss him.

If you send me a message, I'll try and keep up with them all.

All the best, Jean

---------------Goes against the grain to leave this as "BS"! I'm sure Joe will contact you re password. JoeClone--------

Hopefully, by now, Jon has shared with you our new CD in which we recorded one of your most beloved (by our family!) songs: The Old Woman and the Pig! Much love to you all.

Jean,

Friday, the day you started this thread, would have been Vaughn's 72nd birthday. It's a day the boys and I, and various other friends, take care to celebrate every year. Hearing your voice again (however electronically) made a special day more so.

People ask - now and again, and one way or another - how life is when you've lost your life partner. However I choose to phrase it, my answer's always the same, "bittersweet." Some days....some days the "sweet" gets to be the stressed syllable.

So good to hear from you!

- George

Does anyone have a current e-mail address for Jean Richie. Coope Boyes & Simpson would like to mail her to make sure they've got all the publishing details for "Cool of the Day" are exactly right so that Jean gets all the relevant fees from the numerous radio plays of their recording of the song on "As if..."

It's a great song and Jean deserves every penny the BBC will (we hope) be sending to her.

Coope Boyes & Simpson can be contacted via me - georgina@nomasters.co.uk

Great to hear from you Jean. Talking about you to Jacqui McDonald the other day. She had a big concert at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall the other week to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the start of the folk club she and Bridie used to organise together, and which Jacqui has been running every month in recent years. Jacqui has now decided to stop running the club, so the celebration was also a sad moment.
All best wishes to you. look forward to hearing from you again!

Jean, welcome back to Mudcat. I am sorry about your husband. I don't know how I've missed this thread until now. I saw you in Rhode island several years ago. I think Aubrey Atwater, Elwood Donnelly performed, too. I;m sure they were instrumental (no pun intended) in bringing you here. I also remember some slides you showed of your church. Thank you for all the wonderful music I have enjoyed.

My father, who would have been 95 on Mon, died this summer. I did a tribute to both him and you at a performance this summer; I remember him talking about trade unions with a guest at your picnic who had sung Solidarity Forever, so I worked out an accompaniament on Appalachian dulcimer and explained how important you were in bringing this instrument to a wider audience.

I see you started this thread on George's birthday. I'm glad we had a chance to meet him.

Dear Jean: Finding you back on Mudcat warms my heart.
I wrote a tribute to George you can find here:
http://www.thesunchronicle.com/articles/2011/01/24/columns/8717320.txt

should have sent it to you earlier, but I felt I hadn't quite done him justice. Still feel that way, but on a second read, the piece isn't as bad as I had thought.
It's only a guess, but I think the concert Chantey Lass references above was "Mountain Music in the Ocean State" at the historic Slater Mill site in Pawtucket.

Howdy Jon--I just ran across this, sorry to hear about your beautiful mom. We met several times over the years, and have written many times. Your mom always spoke to me as though we were lifelong friends. She means a great deal to me, Jon, and the dulcimer never loses its wonder for me. It has been a major pastime, and more, and I consider the Pickow-Ritchie family to be my family, too. Thank you all so much. You're super.

Write Jon or Peter--see if you can find out how Jean's doing as I would like to know. She has touched my life so much. I don't know how else to say it. Thanks for all your efforts, too.
