Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Mudcat People: Just heard of the passing of John Foley, one of the originators, if not THE originator of The Yellow Door Coffeehouse in Montreal. I believe the place started in 1967. There was a room, some yellow paint, and so, The Yellow Door was born. John sang, wrote songs, and played an old Guild. He was kind-hearted, funny, talented, intense, and a fine man. It was an honor to have known him. Without him, there would have been no Yellow Door. Please help to get the word out...bob
