Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known '60s Folk Singers
From Montreal there was a good songwriter who hosted the hoots at the back door. He played a song titled 'Soup d'Jour" that I always wanted to learn. Had a long beard and a blind backup fiddler. Anyone remember his name?

The songwriter (now beardless) was Chris Rawlings. The fiddle player was Gilles Losier.

Friends: Just got reminded last night at Le Festival de Jazz de Montreal of Tex Koenig's walking with Bob Dylan (memories, "The Village," N.Y.C.) through Mariposa(Toronto) so many years ago. And how that could happen without anybody paying too much of a mind.

You're really wrong about people not paying too much of a mind the time Dylan showed up as a "tourist" at Mariposa. If I recall correctly it was 1972 or '73 and it caused such a commotion that he has to be evacuated by security from the Toronto Islands.
