I've always thought Cat was one of the more interesting posters on the pre-war blues list.
In 2002 I purchased her book "Hoodoo, Herb And Root Magic:A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure" and it arrived with a free sachet of "Hot Foot Power"...what more could a guy want.  :P

In 1995 Cat Yronwode joined the PreWar Blues List and used to be a very active and knowledgeable member, not only in terms of voodoo and like, but also prewar blues. I've not heard from her for years. She may well be a member of RBF.

I'm pretty sure I posted something about Cat a few years back and I think her site is in Weeniepedia Links. I think she is a tremendously interesting person. If you investigate her full website you'll find she covered a wide variety of interests in her life, from comic book publishing to tantric sex. Her Hoodoo store is just up the road in Santa Rosa and back when I had a jug band I always wanted to just drive up, pile out of the car and start playing some Memphis Jug Band tunes, of which she professed to be a huge fan. Like BH, I always appreciated her posts and queries on the pre war list, but haven't seen her posting there since it was all but silenced by the RBF. She must be getting on in years and I certainly hope she's in good health.

Edit to add: I checked her wikipedia page and she's only a few years older than me, so not so long in the tooth. Gotta get up there soon.

Hi all,
I merged the new "Blues Lyrics and Hoodoo" thread with a pre-existing one of the same title.
All best,
Johnm
