Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Thank you, Janet in New Jersey for mentioning Laura Weber! She was my music teacher in high school. A wonderful person and wonderful teacher. She took our class into the local NET (former name of PBS) studio, KQED, San Francisco, and onto the set a few times when her folk guitar show was being taped. We got to sit and listen to her and Pete Seeger, Mike Seeger, classical player Christopher Parkening, and Elizabeth Cotton, in separate shows. It was a music education I'll never forget. I don't think she did gigs outside of her teaching, but I agree that she should be included in this thread, if for no other reason than to honor her as a great teacher, R.I.P.
