Stewart Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) (47) RE: Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) 25 Aug 14


It seems that Jean Redpath (sadly) isn't widely known among younger people (or maybe I'm just getting too old), but it took several days for the NY Times to get the news, and then they buried it in the Obits section. Our local rag, the Seattle Times had no mention whatsoever. Yesterday on our local public radio Celtic music show the DJ (after I sent him the news) admitted he knew very little about her, and opened his announcement with "... who dated Bob Dylan at one time" (arrrgh!) and then quoted from the NY Times Obit. And this DJ was a grad of the UW Ethno-musicology Dept!

I dug out my old LP of Jean's "Lowlands" and converted it to a CD. Some great singing! She certainly left a huge musical legacy.

Cheers, S. in Seattle
