Jean Ritchie, Harlow 1979


Thanks to Joe Locker for providing this record of a defining moment in my life. Jean Ritchie at one of her most intimate performances in the tiny studio room of Harlow Playhouse. The impact on the few of us children lucky enough to get in... finally leading to this website 30 years later.

Jean Ritchie sings, with Robbin McKidd on guitar and Bobby Campbell on fiddle. Joe Locker lurks with banjo in the shadows. Other photos show Jean with Joe Locker in the Club Tent at Cambridge Folk Festival.
