GUEST,Sandy Paton tales of Pat Dunford (37) RE: tales of PAT DUNFORD 20 Nov 04


Well, Art, I guess you know that it was Pat who took Lee Haggerty to record Vern Smelser on that trip in 1963, a trip I was unable to make because I was ill that spring. Lee took Henry Felt, a student at Goddard College, along to run the tape recorder, as he was much too unsure of his own ability to handle such technical stuff. "Tom Sherman's Bar Room" on my "Ballads and Songs of Tradition - From the Folk-Legacy Archives" is sung by Vern.
    Also -- Pat introduced Lee (and Henry) to Arnold Keith Storm and the resulting tapes became Storm's "Take the News to Mother - and Other Songs of a More Sentimental Age" (Folk-Legacy CD-18). Keith Storm still lives in Mooresville, Indiana, and may have memories of Pat to share with you. We had dinner with him and his wife the last time we came back from singing out in Missouri.
    As I remember, I was told that Pat was also related to Wade Ward in some way. As you know, Lee passed away nearly four years ago. Since I never met Pat myself, I can add nothing more to this, but I'll ask Caroline to look up Keith's address and I'll send it to you by personal e-missive. Glad to see that you're back in action. Chris must have fixed your internet connection for you. Good show!
