GUEST,Willie-O Info: Carolyn Hester: 60's Folksinger (56* d) RE: Carolyn Hester: 60's Folksinger 16 Feb 05

Met her in 89 at Kerrville Tx. Lovely woman in every way. Certified earth mother with gray braids and an interest in American native spirituality and issues. Having heard a little of her early 60's stuff, I'd say her style was really rooted in Texas old-time then and maybe didn't go uptown with trends...considering the people she ran with, I really don't know why.

Most telling anecdote in the Hajdu book Michael S mentioned was how she pulled a gun on Richard Farina (his own gun) after he had been mean to her in a restaurant. He deserved it. That's just the way the girls are from Texas. The word "feisty" comes to mind.
