GUEST,Dom Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) (47) RE: Obit: Jean Redpath (1937-2014) 26 Aug 14


So Sad

My Grandmother Ella taught Jean a couple of songs, Banks O' Red Roses and Lichtbob's Lassie " Songs that I can never sing without hearing Ella's voice" Jean

"One of the first songs I decided to learn was Lichtbob's Lassie"
"I'd known Ella for more than 50 years. She was a rare spirit and I think of her often when I'm singing one of the songs I had from her.
Jean Redpath

(See Ella Ward on Kist O Riches website)


I never met Jean. We past through Fife once but she wasn't home that time.

I have been waiting for her new books to come on sale which were to be a memoir and a book of songs I believe.

Jean was a family friend from the early days of Edinburgh University Folksong Society. I think of Jean, because of that connection to my grand parents, my mother Pat and Hamish's folk song revival.   

I feel the same

Aw, shit!
