Jean Ritchie 1922-2015

I was saddened this morning to hear that Jean Ritchie, the great traditional singer, folklorist and songwriter passed away yesterday at age 92.

I'm glad, though, that Dear Jean - Artists Celebrate Jean Ritchie, a wonderful tribute album to Jean was released last year while she was still alive and could appreciate the love of the folk music community expressed in the singing and playing of her songs and the traditional songs she taught us.
