Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Great thread. Let's keep it going.

Actually, many people who sang in folk clubs in the sixties became famous, just not recognized as folksingers. The 'renagade picker' Steve Young is one, the lady who saved County Music, Emmylou Harris, is another. Even a member of the Pre-fab Four, Peter Tork. All sat on that lonely bar stool in a Greenwich Village folk club, guitar in hand, and learned to connect with an audience.
