Subject: RE: John Reilly, traveller singer.
I worked with Kenny Goldstein for three days at the University of Pennsylvania. He let me loose in his library, I think I got three hours sleep over those few days, and that was in his armchair. That was back in the 1980's. We all went out to a restaurant that served Ethiopian food, and Kenny paid. 'This is food boy EAT!!' I loved him and his family. I understood most of his work was in Newfoundland. I was very interested in the West Country connection. I played Girvan festival this year and was introduced to Margaret Bennett who worked with him out in Newfoundland. Her book Jerome (Downey) contains a CD that includes some of Kenny's recordings. He was a dynamic field worker.
