Hi Art,

Great stories. I remember Bill Chipman so well because he sang a version of Barbara Allen which was terrific. I remember it to this day! I learned Utah Carroll from the book by Austin Fife, (Saints of Saddle and Sagebrush?)..help me Sandy, and an early recording of it which I can't remember but I associate with Library Of Congress field recordings. When Bill came into the Old Town School of Folk Music, Dawn Greening immediately, in her warm inimitable way glommed onto him. He had come by the School to gather money for his local mission. (At least that's what he said). Next thing, he was being sent by the School to play on private party bookings in the North Shore of the Chicago area. He arrived at one gig about an hour earlier and helped the hostess wash dishes and set up for the party. Like you, Art, I wonder where he went?
