GUEST,Barbara Remember The Folkway Coffeehouse? (45) RE: Remember The Folkway Coffeehouse? 10 Jul 20


I remember Widdie's mother's community interactive game with The Peeps (short for People). I came to Peterborough as an acting apprentice for the Peterborough Players under Sally Brown and took acting classes with Flo Peters (Morrie Pierce's wife). I acted with The Players as a townie and happily with their regular equity actors, Roseanne and Jerry Dempsey, Chuck Morey. Meyer Goldman introduced me to Richard Frede, the novelist, and we married and made two wonderful sons. I remember every detail of The Folkway. So many old names pop up—Kate Knicely and John Steptoe and Padma. My younger son bussed, as a young teen, those tables (and MacDowell's) and worked at Roy's Market. My other son worked in Peterborough too. I visit often but didn't know about the Peterborough Folklore Center. I remember seeing the little kids. This brings back so many memories. I don't know how to be in touch, but since I'll hear Bill Staines in Acton, MA this Saturday, I found this MUDCAT site. Thank you.
