cetmst Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) (47) RE: Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) 22 Aug 14


We were privileged to see Jean Redpath twice, once in the 70's driving the 450 miles from Columbia MD with four young teenagers to our NH home in North Conway we passed the town of Tamworth NH, population about 2000, twenty miles from home and saw a sign advertising her concert at the Tamworth Congregational Church and drove in. The church was filled and we had to sit on the floor. She graciously delayed the start as we got settled and afterward greeted us and heard our story, very warm and friendly lady. About 20 years later she gave a concert at the Candlelight Concert Society in Columbia, a comprehensive and well-organized performance - "I won't do requests" - our only request was "More". I have most of her recordings and some transcriptions of Prairie Home Companion broadcasts and will continue to listen to them and regret not hearing more.
