Dan Schatz Jean Ritchie Turns 90 (60* d) Happy 90th Birthday Jean Ritchie! 05 Dec 12

This Saturday, December 8, our beloved KYTRAD turns 90. Jean has been living quietly in Berea, KY for the last few years, in good spirits and well cared for by neighbors and family.

One of the great privileges of my adult life has been getting to know Jean, singing with her, and enjoying her company - most recently this Summer, when several of us joined her in Berea for a long afternoon of singing. The breadth and depth of Jean's music - and its continuing influence - continues to astound me. She is both a national treasure and one of the kindest, most down to earth people I have ever met. Just a lovely human being, in every way.

Jean's not on the internet these days, but if people want to leave birthday greetings here, I'll print out the whole thread and send it on to Jean. They may get there a little late, but they will get there.

Happy birthday Jean!
