johnross Best ever folk gig (49) RE: Best ever folk gig 18 Aug 07


Fairport at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Saturday afternoon in 1970. Ten thousand people in an enormous ring dance to their extended medley of reels. The first time they had played in front of a big folk audience, rather than a Fleetwood Mac audience, or so they said while packing up after the show.

Baby Gramps at the Northwest Folklife Festival in 1977, with Larry Vanover (Mr. Jugs) wailing on an epic version of "Teddy Bear's Picnic."

An unaccompanied ballad singer named Naneen at the Arkansas Folk Festival in Mountain View, 1971. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.
