Carol Ann Sweet

June 2, 1940 - March 18, 2007


Carol Ann Sweet

 

Heaven has gained another angel and the New Jersey music family has lost one of its most beloved sisters. Carol Ann Sweet passed into eternity in the early hours of March 18th. Carol Ann was the dulcimer and chorded zither player with her band The Sugar Sand Ramblers. Along with her husband Jim and the rest of the band members they have been delighting crowds with their original and traditional songs for many years. Carol Ann's lilting voice and virtuoso playing will not soon be forgotten by any of us that had the pleasure of hearing her. Her impromptu clogging sessions at the back of venues she played will not be forgotten either. She was a joy to be around, a pleasure to listen to, and a beautiful person in the true sense of the word. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Jim, her family, and her friends.
