Subject: RE: Folk singers with longest career
Hi Robyn,

Thanks for the remembrance.

Sadly, Erik is no longer with us. Ronnie is still in the Bay Area and Freddie, last time I saw him was at Toshi's memorial service sounding great as ever. Guy and Jack are still at it. Peggy Seeger is still performing, good as ever. Oscar Brand, also. My old partner and friend, Ernie Lieberman is still writing and singing.

Dick, I think it was actually Carl Sandburg who predated Sam that invented the term
"folksinger" although it has a German equivalent. "Minnesinger?"
