Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers

Boy does this thread conjure up old memories --especiay of Tex who i knew quite well in Boulder (1960), I was a freshman at theUniversity (briefly) and he had just finished gunsmithing school. In Boulder there was another talented singer named Judy Roderick who I learned a lot of songs from only to discover, later, that they had come from Sandy Paton who had been spending time in Aspen. What a great musical scne Boulder was back then -- not just at the coffee houses and bars, (there and in Denver), but at the the University itself....both at the folk music jams and with the YPSL's (Young People's Socialist League).

Jackie Washington played in Denver at that time, and i think Dave Guth did too. later, when i transferred back east to school (Sarah Lawrence), I remember jamming with a wonderful folksinger named Carly Simon who played with her sister soon after that as the Simon Sisters.

As for Martha Burns. she now lives in DC and is one of my good friends.
