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


Thanks for the explanation.

The second part you have confused me a little though. The film does mention that the Red Scare did briefly split them up, but the documentary is *about* the 1980 Carnegie Hall appearance and Harold Leventhal explicitly states the New York performance will be the only one (of course I'm guessing that there were a few at Carnegie).

I know how laid-back Clearwater can be. I have been going since before I can remember (the first time I was on the ship I was so young that I was *allowed* to make noise during the moment of silence) and that must have still been amazing to see the original Weavers perform.

I go to college right near where Pete lives and someone I met was trying to coerce me into finding out Pete's address and knocking on his door, like the infamous Bob Dylan-Woody Guthrie interchange.

Thanks again for your information!
