Lady Hillary Bob Shane is done after 47 years (2004) (73* d) RE: Bob Shane is done after 47 years 26 Apr 04


EBarnacle here.

There is a new group performing called "The Work of the Weavers." Dave Bernz, the sparkplug of the group, essentially grew up in the Seeger household and was brought into the Sloop Singers by Pete. As mentioned earlier, his performance style is very similar to Pete's.

He is not a Pete clone but he was brought up in the tradition, respects it and is carrying it on. The key here is THE TRADITION, not trying to be a replica of the original group. They could all qualify as "Red diaper" types and are interested in the ongoing labor struggle. At least one of them is self employed and I don't believe that any of them will get rich from this effort. In essence, they are doing what they believe is right, doing it well and enjoying themselves. Who could ask for more.
