Stewart Paul Clayton biography coming in Sept 2008 (33) RE: Paul Clayton biography coming in Sept 22 May 17


Here is an article I wrote for the NW HOOT June/July 2017
based primarily on Bob Coltman's biography of Clayton.

Paul Clayton Unsung Hero of the Early Folksong Revival

Coltman's book is very interesting - I highly recommend reading it. Not only about Clayton, but about the early folksong revival, which was going on in the early 1950s before it got eclipsed by the commercial era of the 1960s. Too bad the book is so expensive - over $40 even on the used book market. The only copy I could find around here was in the Univ. Washington music library.

Cheers, S. in Seattle
