Thread Name: Obit: Ed McCurdy has passed away (1919-2000)
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy has passed away
I am sorry to hear of his death. Many years ago, I listened a lot to his 'Treasure Chest of American Folk Song' - I think Eric Darling was accompanying him on those - a wonderful overview of American folk song. His western albums also first introduced me to great cowboy songs like 'Punchin' the Dough' and 'Along side the Santa Fe Trail'.
