Subject: RE: Tell me about Si Kahn...
The movie "Norma Rae" starring Sally Fields was based on a true story. In the real story, the union organizer was Si Kahn. I don't know if Si really "skinny dipped" with Norma Rae though.

Si's songs are wonderful in their simplicity. When I heard his first album I wanted to learn all of the songs. He is also a generous performer as you might guess from some of the postings above. Si is still an organizer and he usually brings some materials concerning his current cause.
