Jay Hartman-Berrier died yesterday of cancer. I'm not sure of the date when she started running the Indian Neck Folk Festival but it was well over 40 years ago. She was still planning this year's event along with her husband Bob and daughter Becky Daddona at her end.

I don't know how many Americans are left here, let alone Americans who knew Jay, but thanks for starting this, Wally.
She opened a world to me when she invited me to Indian Neck, and I met many friends and people I wanted as friends. Few people are creators of worlds, and she was one of those. Love to Bob and her daughters, and their families. She left an awful lot behind with her mark visible.

I'm also sad to hear this. I have added her name to the "In Memoriam" thread. My condolences to all who knew her and loved her.

RIP

Peter

Thanks for starting this thread, Wally. I thought about it, but I have a family crisis of my own going on right now.

Hearing of the state of Jay's illness on Wednesday morning was like getting slammed in the chest with a telephone pole. She was one of those people who were supposed to be here forever.

Tom and I were invited and started coming regularly to Indian Neck in 1992, thanks to Jay Smith. The Indian Neck community and Jay gave me my identity as a singer in my own right, not just as an adjunct to Tom Hall as his wife who sang with him.

Jay Hartman-Berrier introduced me on a personal level to the folk of folk music in the United States (and the wider world), outside of my comparatively small pond of The Press Room.

Indian Neck was Jay's life...and her memorial and legacy.

Linn
