Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
By the bye; Travis Edmonson is still kicking down in Arizona. He has shown up at a couple of events; folk camps, etc., over the past few years. He is wheelchair bound. His old partner, Bud Dashiell, ran a guitar shop/studio in LA back in the 70's, I believe. He has been gone for many years. I still run into Nick Reynolds, of the Kingston Trio, now and again in Coronado, CA. He is retired, having trouble with his legs and hips, but still enjoys cooking. He's also a dangerous driver - ask the locals. The last original performing member of the Trio, Bob Shane, is retired - with some health issues - in Arizona. Various Trio members used to get together in the Coronado backyard of Nick's sister and brother-in-law for jams. John Stewart, Nick's nephew, Joey Harris, and others would drop in. This was an old home once occupied by Frank Baum when he wrote the Wizard of Oz. The last of those was probably in the early 90's or so. None of these guys were "unknowns," obviously, but there's an update, for what it's worth. I once told Nick how much "trouble" he and his mates caused for all of us young wannabe types, getting us started in the Folk way. His response, "Yeah; but wasn't it all a gas!"
