Thanks, Mojohand!  I've seen Jean Ritchie play her own stuff plus old ballads many times.  She came down to our town at least once a year and did concerts plus had a lot of friends in the area...would talk to people and just tell a lot about how she wrote her songs, etc.  I can't say I knew her, really, but I listened to her and spoke to her many times, so I almost feel like I knew her, or at least really got what she was doing.  I think so, anyway...she was a very kind and sincere person, and a treasure of old Kentucky folk tales and songs.  I hope I was able to do it justice, in my own amatueristic way.
