Thread Name: Who's the 'Best' folk singer you know?
Subject: RE: Who's the 'Best' folk singer you know?
I like this one, mainly 'cause I may hear about someone I don't know and might like. Keep 'em coming please. As for me, I like different folks for different reasons. Gordon Bok for his voice and his taste, Peter Paul and Mary and the Weavers for their harmonies and energy, Pete Seegerr, because he's Pete (I guess he gets in there twice because of the Weavers) John McCutchin because he writes well, and he's a lot of fun in performance, Inti Illmani because they make me practically dance in my seat, Michael Cooney, because he led one of the best sing alongs I've ever heard, John Roberts and Tony Barrand because I Love those harmonies, Paul Simon because he also writes real good, etc. etc. etc.
