Lynn Gold Whatever happened to folksinger Lynn Gold (94* d) RE: Whatever happened to folksinger Lynn Gold 24 Aug 11


Hi,

Speaking of the great Oscar Brand, was on a Canadian television show with him years ago...one which over the season had many other American folkies on. The format was similar to Hootennanny, the latter, I've been told, having taped over most of the shows so that they are lost to us unless someone out there filmed it from their televisions in their living rooms. It would be a sad loss. Everyone was on that show. I've also sometimes wondered if there is film of such greats as Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Peter LaFarge, Sam Hinton, Bess Hawes, Cisco Houston and so many others. It was a time when I remember glancing down some steps in the Village into a basement folk club rushing by, and seeing Johnny Cash hunched over his gitar, donation basket at his feet...think it was Peter LaFarge or Dylan singing with him. He knew them all. Peter was the son of the Director of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, wrote extraodinarily beautiful songs, and died too young. Will be in touch soon. lynn
