Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Somewhere around 1960, I went with a group of friends to the Ash Grove, in L.A. On the bill that night were Mike Seeger and his group and Sam Hinton, among others. I moved here in 1967 only to find that Sam was a local institution, based out of U. of Calif. San Diego. He just had a big going away party and moved into assisted living in northern California. A great performer and a wonderful storyteller and mentor who will be greatly missed. Free association is crazy. I just recalled meeting Bob Canning in Durango, CO, last year. He is now a western artist, a new career after recovering from a bad accident with a horse. He grew up in Orillia, Ontario (Lightfoot's home town)and was a folksinger there before becoming an award-winning movie director and producer. Keep 'em coming!
