BrooklynJay Obit: Fred Hellerman (1927-2016) (19) RE: Obit: Fred Hellerman (1927-2016) 04 Sep 16

Regarding those who replaced Pete Seeger in The Weavers, to the best of my knowledge only Frank Hamilton (Mudcat's "Stringsinger") and Bernie Krause (aka Dr. Bernard Krause) are still with us.

Anyone have any other information?

I grew up listening to Theodore Bikel's albums, and I have (somewhere) the album with Geula Gill. But, off the top of my head, I also remember the 1958 album Theodore Bikel Sings Jewish Folk Songs where, besides playing, Fred Hellerman's voice can also be heard on at least one song. (I think it's "A Sundenyu", but I'm not 100% certain.)

Mr. Hellerman's death is a huge loss. A part of my childhood, adolescence, adulthood and maturity has gone. But, thanks to all those wonderful recordings he left us, new generations can (and will) enjoy and appreciate his musical legacy.
