Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
I meant the David Rae who, at about 17 years old, used to live in Toronto and played back-up guitar for many Canadian folk singers as well as doing solo gigs at coffe houses. He backed up Ian & Sylvia, Joanie Anderson (later Mitchell) and Gord Lightfoot at the Mariposa Festival that was held in Maple Leaf Stadium in the sixties.

The late David Snaker Ray wouldn't fit into the "Little Known" catagory, since almost everyone I knew in the sixties who was into acoustic music had a copy of Blues, Rags & Hollers and Lots More B,R&H.
