Al Cromwell,
Judith Orban,
Malka & Joso,
David Rea,
Eric Hoard, (Both David and Eric backed up Ian & Sylvia)
               (David backed up everyone)
Josh White Jr.,
Big John McManaman, (of the York County Boys)
Merrick Jarrett,
Terry Whelan (although his singing partner, Gord Lightfoot became
               quite famous, Terry is still relatively unknown.)

Anyone have further information about Laura Weber ??

I see 2 LP's: Folk Guitar-beginner; More Folk Guitar-intermediate
privately issued
Were there others ??

one post mentions 4 books - what were they ???

I see this one:
Laura Weber and Virginia Duncan
A Series of Beginning Lessons in Folk Guitar, (Folk Guitar with Laura Weber) Produced by KQED San Francisco, 1965

an obituary from November 1995 from SFGate...
Laura Weber, a music teacher whose folk guitar lessons were a mainstay of public television for many years in the 1960s and '70s, died of cancer Sunday at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco. She was 70.

Mrs. Weber's two TV series both were produced at KQED in San Francisco. Her first was Time for Music, a children's series that was aired for six years. Her second, Folk Guitar with Laura Weber, was at one time carried by 52 TV stations across the country.

A native of New York City who attended the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she was a private teacher in San Francisco and was on the music faculty at San Francisco State University.

Survivors include a sister, Eleanor Meyer of Hayward; a daughter, Valerie Cartwright of Sunland; and two grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. December 4, at Knuth Hall at the S.F. State College of Creative Arts.

Donations can be sent to the SFSU Foundation/Laura Weber Fund, c/o the Music Department, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco 94132.


There is another performer LAURA WEBER-CASH, a fiddler and singer.
It may be this performer who is credited as 'Laura Weber' on a CMH CD of Civil War Songs, and a couple of Larry Perkins CD's ?????????????

Mike Slossen (sp?) is on the list, and I've wondered what happened to him. I believe he was out of Texas, where he played at one time with Jerry Jeff Walker, before Bojangles made a star of Jerry Jeff. Mike was on the road for several years, and then got drafted during the Vietnam War. He went AWOL and decided to move to Sweden. The night before he left I was with him at a Reverend Gary Davis gig in a church in Greenwich Village. Maybe Judson Memorial. The year was about 1968. Any updates would be welcome.

I met Jamie at the Troubadour in L.A. at the Elton John concert.

He wrote the song "Late Night Countess" about me. We began a correspondence and I went to visit him in Nottingham, NH just before he sold his farm around 1973. I have not seen him since.

Please let me know if you ever find him. He used to be listed in the phone directory under General George Custer.

I'll tell you about someone who you don't know, who in my opinion is one of the best
folksingers around today. His name is Chick Marston and he was a former fisherman from Gloucester, Mass. He plays a good guitar, lots of blues and ballads and is modest. He's married to a lady who sings very well named Ellen Ford, an alto who can belt out a tune with the best of them.

Barbara Barrow and Micheal Smith deserve to be mentioned. His song, "The Dutchman" is a classic.

I happened across these threads while doing some research on my father's old coffee house, The Interlude Cafe. My father was the Max Heilbrunn that was mentioned by Steve Suffet in a post about the Interlude. Name was close but it was almost 50 years ago.

I would love to know more about the Interlude from anyone out there is cyberspace. Steve- your memory is amazing.

As I am sure most know, the Kitty Genovese murder was pretty much the end of that incarnation of the Interlude. I am pleased to see that the old roots are still soaked in coffee. I actually have a few of the dishes that my Dad used in the store. Unfortunately he died in 1974 but he would have been touched by the memories of his beloved Interlude.

Any information will be great appreciated.

Yes, Bruno Wolf was originally a guy named David Simon from Great Neck, Long Island. I knew him first in the Village through a girl named Wendy Shore and through Perry Lederman, both of whom I knew at the Univ. of Michigan in Ann Arbor. David was a rather comical guy and bright and played guitar a little I think and had a harmonica.

He later got into health foods and was selling these from a push cart and maybe even had a restaurant in the East Village.

Then he was in Jim Kweskin's Jug Band where he sang and played harmonica. After that I do not know what happened to him although he was already talking about Scientology.

It seems the surviving members of Kweskin's Jug Band would know more about David Simon. I am still friends with Jim, Geoff, and Maria and will ask them. I will be performing in a FESTIVAL over Memorial Day celebrating he Fiftieth Anniversary of the DENVER FOLKLORE CENTER and will see Jim and Geoff there.
I am just finishing my CD # 7 by the way

GUEST Dave Hard asked, about 5 posts back, from August 2011, about a singer of The Agnostic Hymn. I believe that would be MIKE NEUN, whom I met at a sing about 20 years ago in Suquamish WA here in the Pacific Northwest. He was working as a comedian, including his own songs and pretty good 12 string chops, on cruise ships. I'm glad to be reminded of him, and if I can find one of the tapes or CDs I bought from him I'll be pleased to hear them again. Very funny and very nice guy.

I don't think Bonnie Dobson qualifies as "little known" ... there were a handful of household names and then there were the Bob Gibsons, Len Chandlers and Bonnie Dobsons, who were known to everyone who travelled in 1960's North American and British folk circles.

Bonnie Dobson may have been little known and did retire from folk song many years back...BUT, I believe she was a fine singer and fairly influential among those that did know her.

Her records are on CD now and still good.

Please PM or e-mail me if you have her (London, perhaps) e-mail or other contact. I'd like to send her a card.

Some of us who started out in the late 1960s have stayed unknown, not so much because of going into hibernation but rather through moving away from the UK. The hibernation came later with the realisation that the level of air pollution in the bars etc. was deleterious to my health. Of course, not belonging to the 'London scene' didn't necessarily help either. So now here I am, still outside the UK, with a lot of songs I've written over the years, most of which have never been sung in public, creeping out of hibernation- smoking has been banned in bars etc. and so singing in public is once again an interesting and enjoyable option.
Two years ago I discovered that Mr. Gladstone's Bag used to sing one of my songs(The Bakewell Witches).Pity I never got to hear their version.Coope,Boyes and Simpson have also recorded a song (The Uttoxeter Souling Song) which I exhumed from the archives and made a tune for- I wonder if they realise where/who the song comes from?

Too much blowing my own horn? Possibly, but at my age I don't feel like being particularly modest any more!

Who remembers The Garden Gnome Ceilidh Band (the UK original)??

Does anyone remember the guy who played 12-string guitar on PBS late at night. He started doing topical stuff when Mark Russell (piano) stopped doing his wonderful Tom Leher(sp.)-style songs. One of the unknown guy's songs was about religion "I don't know, I don't know, I haven't a clue which way you should go....." and I'd love to find the full lyrics.

Hey Folkmusicgirl & Deljeanne (Adele Assante) Contact me on Facebook so I can get you copies of the music Adele and I did back when...I still play banjo and guitar solo and with two folk groups here in Boulder. Does anyone else remember playing the Tete-a-Tete and the Ballad Room? Or the open mics at the 47 with Bill Staines?

1962-1963 Dinky Town Circa. I recently heard from Clark Moffitt AKA Clark Maffitt who is living in Martha's Vinyard where his daughter owns a restauarant. I was engaged to him in that era after I met him at the Scholar in Mpls. His rendition of The First Time made me fall instantly in love. I also remember having Maxine Sellers and Josh White Junior come to have dinner at my apartment where the landlord called my mother to have me evicted because of their racial differences. Don't know what happened to Peter Seagraves. I could use one of those 60s rent parties how so many of us survived in the early 60s. Hmmm I think I partially sold out from Beatnik to major land developer! I still am a Lass from The Low Country looking for my Lord of High Degree.

Hi, All. I'm still a little-known folksinger, alive and well in the Philly area. Minor correction: Max was my cousin, but was certainly old enough to have been my uncle.

RE: JUDY BRIGHT. She is in and around Evanston, Illinois these days. (I talked to her last week.) For many years she taught school.

Sadly, that Dot Records LP was the only one she ever did put out. My copy is long gone. I did manage to put it on a cassette -- along with a few live things by Judy at the No Exit Coffeehouse--circa 1960s-70s. She helps her husband, Mike Stein, put out the magazine called "Film Fax" which is devoted to some of the strangest science fiction films, interviews ephemera, flotsam and jetsam that I've ever seen offered anywhere. Actually a couple hundred thousand DVD reissues of films that only cult devotees could like. Still, I enjoy looking through Film Fax just to see what films I would never ever want to purchase. ---- As you can see, I am at a loss for words to describe the niche this magazine fills. To say it is science fiction is accurate, but also, saying that is a disservice to the really good Sci-Fi films that they feature also (sometimes).

Also, Judy Bright (her maiden name) is, and has been, Judy Stein for many years. Back in the 60s I loved her music.

BUT Dylan had nothing to do with that record. (He wasn't there then either. ;-) The hamonica was played on the song Tumbalalaika by Judy's then agent Jerry Adler---whose brother, Larry Adler, was a solo harmonica player of much repute a decade or two earlier..

Hope this helps you folks looking for her.

Hello out there!

I moved from Brisbane, Australia to Montreal in 1965 which spelled break-up for a young Brisbane group called Babayaga Trio (predates other groups of this name). Also in the trio were Murray Uhlmann (deceased) and Ray Gurney (very active in the Aussie folk music scene, in Sydney). The Montreal Folk Workshop became my favourite haunt from 65-69, and I launched a one man band act there (more energy than finesse, but it was fun): guitar, maraca (in running shoe), harmonica, kazoo and whistle. ... Flamenco jazz these days.

Let's hear it for the lesser known from Moose Hall, 1960s!
