Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Like others, I am wonderfully happy to find this thread and even see some recent notes in it. I first fell in love with Hedge and Donna's lyrics and voices and spirits in '69 or '70 when they performed outside on the grass at Cal State Long Beach. I was still in high school, but those words carried me through college and inspired, I believe, my social and anti-war activism.... Put my favorite album of theirs on a tape but then lent it to a friend who never returned it. My favorite song was "Becoming" ("Go on becoming...all becoming one....") How fun to hear others reminisce about the Golden Bear and Troubador. Throughout years have found that many of the musicians I have met played those places and the Ice House...and whether in CO, OR, WA, or AK...many of them knew each other and played together. Doc Don Schultz, Tom and Theresa Demarest (now no longer married), John Denver, Denny Brooks, and more. Just shows the importance of music. Peace.
