Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Another one of my inspirations growing up in Maine has been Edward "Sandy" Ives, teacher and folklorist at the University of Maine at Orono. He's responsible for collecting many lumbering ballads from Maine and Canada, publishing and recording them as well. I suppose he's better known for his academic accomplishments but he's also a fine singer and an inspiration to generations of students, including myself. He also wrote a wonderful book about the ballad "The Bonny Earl of Murray."

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
