raredance Has anyone heard of the Wayfarers? (76* d) RE: Has anyone heard of the Wayfarers? 01 Nov 02


The US Wayfarers that R-J mentions as a quartet later became a trio. There are at least two other albums by the group, "Live at the World's Fair," (that would have been Seattle), and an LP of Civil War Songs.

I have another LP from 1956 called "The Wayfarers". It was composed of Paul Blaine an operatic baritone, Ilka Sylvern a soprano, and Lee Schaefer a "singer of jazz and pop songs" They do folk material probably more from the Richard Dyer-Bennet school of folk performance. The album notes also say that they have "an ever-growing following" so they should be really big soon.
