GUEST,Lynn Gold video: Frank Hamilton's part in We Shall Overcome (8) RE: video: Frank Hamilton's part in We Shall Overcome 27 Dec 20


I've known Frank for over sixty years, performed solo, accompanied me, others, on stage and recordings, in early '60's, I met a tow headed kid at a hoot surrounded by numerous instruments, all of which he played beautifully, you'd sing him a song once and he'd play an exquisite accompaniment instantly, true, no nepotism here, his instruments could sound like a koto, harpsichord, down home blues or wild celtic band of one...we called him a 'genius', say it now and he sputters...he cares a lot about his fellow man and all that's good and decent in this world such as it is...Guy Carawan was like that, too, and Pete, Woody who he knew...he founded schools to teach traditional music on a shoestring, still teaches, plays, writes, carrying on for the love of it All...he is kind, loyal, thoughtful, the kind of friend, if you prayed, you'd pray for...then again, he's really a friend to all...and loving, he's a genius at it
