Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Joe Elias, of golden voice and flowing mustache, lives in the states of semi-retirement and New Jersey. He and Judy live in a lovely developement, wherein dwells another still active survivor from the 60's, Hal Wylie. Hal was, for many years, the lead vocalist for Roger Sprung's Progressive Bluegrassers. Joe and Hal still attend sessions in Philly so, to us, they are as active as ever and we're happy to have them.
Many of our local 60's stars are scattered or gone but I remember them all. Dick Weisman is out west, as is Harry Tufts and Benjy Aaronoff. Jerry Ricks is in Mississippi, Raun McKinnan is in L.A., Michael Kaz is in St.Paul, Saul Broudy is on the road most of the time. The rest of us (Tossi Aaron, George Britton, Jackie Pack, Joe Aaronson et al) stayed close to home and folksang for our suppers all these years. Fame is fleeting, parnessah is permanent.
