Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Peace: I assume you posted "Los Compaņeros" to reply to bubblerat, not because Gaughan is a little known 1960's Folk Singer. Actually, I thank you for it - the event is, of course, in the Happy File but I was too lazy to transcribe more than a few lines of it.

Yah, MacColl/Lloyd recordings were taight in my 60's class as well. MacColl & Peggy also did several concerts there (and Peggy one when the US wouldn't let the "dangerous commie terrorist" into the country.) Having Mac Leech & young Kenny Goldstein around didn't hurt.

But I'm remembering others. There were a number who were fairly widely noted then stopped singing. Ruined their careers as folk singers:

    Andy Griffith
    Burl Ives (athough he did sing for a number of years)
    Alan Arkin
    Liz Dyer (I've had a little contact with her - the lovely erstwhile partner of Dave Goulder is happily married, instead living the joys of one-nigh stands)
    Bonnie Dobson (her first US appearance was in my class, too)
