Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Just got turned on to Mudcat and this thread. Noted reference to Gloucester Ma. by Frank Hamilton. I do remember Frank being in Gloucester.
I remember a fine singer at the Drinking Gourd in San Francisco named Chick Raines, he did a great job on "The Spoon River Anthology", and he had a song with the line "--you just sorta, stepped right on to my aorta--". Charles O'Hegarty made a big splash at the Berkley FF at that time, I think his big hit was "Body in the Bag". At Gerdes Folk City, the actor Dominic Chianese, best known for playing Uncle Junior in the HBO series "The Sopranos", held forth as a singer and the MC at the monday night Hoots. I remember him introducing a very young David Bromberg, and a quite young Lou Killen. Dominic still sings around New York.
