thespionage Erik Darling's history with the Weavers (38) Folklore: Erik Darling and the Weavers 20 Jan 05

Did Erik Darling replace Pete Seeger in the Weavers? I have conflicting information. Cary Ginell says that he did replace Pete in the book that accompanies the compilation "Washington Square Memoirs"; the track listing for "The Greatest Songs of Woody Guthrie" cites that Erik Darling played *with* Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman and Ronnie Gilbert on "The Sinking of the Reuben James" and "Jackhammer John."

In "Wasn't That a Time," the documentary of the Weavers' reunion in 1980 doesn't mention Erik Darling at all, but that isn't necessarily indicative of anything.

What's the deal?
