Additional Info:

“She was an amazing woman. She and her husband ran the mail, raised sheep, and farmed. The wool from her sheep, she wove into clothes for her family. And in the midst of that she sang. Her songs were some of the rarest, so she was favored by folklorists collecting traditional songs. She was such a unique, strong character, that in 2004 when I emailed Mrs John Lorne Campbell to inquire if any recordings till existed, she told her assistant that she remember her well and sent me a copy of Mr. Campbell’s last book that included Katie’s songs.” – Lisa MacDougall, Great-granddaughter of Mrs Catherine Patterson.
