A dyed-in-the-wool folkie lover from the 1960s-1970s. Influences were Robert Sherman's "Woody's Children" on (of all places) WQXR radio in NYC; folk rock on WNEW-FM; Woodstock (Day 1--yeah, it was wet, but not like Sunday!); the summer Music Festivals in Central Park (Rheingold and Schaefer sponsored folks like Arlo, Joni, Tom Paxton, Don McLean, Judy Collins--from $1 to $5 a concert!); Richie Havens playing noon concerts at Baruch College; the first two Minneapolis Folk Festivals, The Whole Coffeehouse, various West Bank venues, and Pete Seeger at Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota.
Most unsurpassed pure musical moment: concert by Bok, Trickett, and Muir at the Georgetown University Cathedral in 1979 or 1980. Memories of the pure harmonies still give me goosebumps!
